Faraday’s Law of Induction

Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 66)


Usually an electric current is produced through a voltage or a difference of electrostatic potential, as when we connect the terminals of a battery by a wire or metallic conductor. A completely independent way of generating an electric current, not related to the previous one, was discovered by Michael Faraday (1791–1867) in 1831. This is the subject of this Chapter.
