Electromagnetic Induction

Students use voltage sensor to measure the maximum emf induced in a coil as a permanent magnet is dropped through it. Students vary the number of loops in the coil and determine how the rate of change of magnetic flux through a coil affects the magnitude and direction of the emf induced in it.
