Faraday1In this experiment, an oscillatory system was employed for the verification of Faraday’s law. Disk magnets were attached with D-shaped metal disk which could oscillate through a fixed coil. Data was acquired using Lab Quest Mini that was attached with a voltage measuring sensor. The flux was obtained from numerical integration. Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction was quantitatively verified. Fr magnetic damping, a resister which was placed across the coil allowing the flow of eddy currents. This experiment helped distinguish magnetic damping from usual damping oscillatory system due to air resistance. The maximum induced emf was plotted in both conditions (open and short) allowing a vivid comparison.
