Item Picture
written by Andrew Duffy
This web page is an interactive physics simulation on changing magnetic flux.  It depicts a bar moving back and forth, representing the area of a loop.   The voltage graph on the right allows users to see how changing the area of the coil can induce an EMF.  

This item part of a collection of similar simulation-based activities by the author.  See Related Items for a link to the full collection developed for a second-semester course in Electricity and Magnetism

Boston University Physics Applets: Changing Area in a Magnetic Field:

Is Part Of Boston University Physics Applets: Second Semester

This is the full collection of simulations by Boston University physics professor Andrew Duffy, developed for use in a second-semester physics course on electricity and magnetism.

Covers the Same Topic As Boston University Physics Applets: A Moving Bar

This item is an extends the concept of induction of an EMF by changing the area of the loop.   It features a bar sliding on rails with a current passing through it.  Students can see how changes in the magnetic flux will cause the bar to speed up or slow down.
