Magnetic Induction and Lenz's Law Kit000322
In 1834, Heinrich Lenz postulated the following law; "An induced current is always in such a direction as to oppose the motion or change causing it".
Demonstrate magnetic induction, Lenz's law and eddy currents the easy way with these carefully designed components.
This high quality, low cost kit is ideal for demonstrating magnetic induction and Lenz's Law. The kit includes a coil, magnet, light emitting diode (LED), copper tube and metal slug. Movement of the magnet through the coil induces a current and lights the LED. The magnet dropped through the copper tube falls more slowly than when outside the tube and when compared to the non-magnetic slug demonstrating the creation of eddy currents in the tube.
