Explain different ways to induce a current in a coil. 

 

Answer

We can induce current by

  • Moving the Conducting Wire inside a Fixed Magnetic Field
    Hence, if we keep a conducting wire near the magnetic field  of magnet and move it vigorously, current will be induced in it.

  • Keeping Wire (Conductor) Fixed and Changing Magnetic Field
    Hence, if keep a wire fixed and change poles of magnet vigorously,current will be induced in wire.

  • Changing current in a nearby coil
    If current is changed in a current carrying coil is placed near the conductor, magnetic field around it would change. Hence, current will be induced
