Faradays Laws of Electromagnetic Induction

Basic laws of electromagnetism relating to the operating principles of transformers, inductors, and many types of electrical motors and generators.

First Law of Electromagnetic Induction

An electromotive force is induced in a conductor when the magnetic field surrounding it changes.

Second Law of Electromagnetic Induction

The magnitude of the electromotive force is proportional to the rate of change of the field.

Third Law of Electromagnetic Induction

The sense of the induced electromotive force depends on the direction of the rate of the change of the field.
