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 student activities by the author.

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.
