Lenz's Law

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Electromagnetism

Lenz's law, abbreviated as \(\epsilon\), is the direction of the current induced in a conductor by changing magnetic field.


Lenz's Law formula

\(\large{ \epsilon  =  -N \; \frac{ \partial \Phi_B }{ \partial t }   }\)   


 Units English Metric
\(\large{ \epsilon }\)  (Greek symbol epsilon) = induced EMF \(\large{V}\) \(\large{V}\)
\(\large{ \partial \Phi_B }\) = change in magnetic flux \(\large{Wb}\) \(\large{Wb}\)
\(\large{ \partial t }\) = change in time \(\large{sec}\) \(\large{s}\)
\(\large{ N }\) = number of turns in coil \(\large{dimensionless}\)
