The Ring Launcher Experiment and Eddy Currents

What are eddy currents? The video focuses upon the demonstration of the concept of Eddy Currents and the application of Lenz Law, using a device called- RING LAUNCHER https://youtu.be/u4pFiJOJdQ8 Eddy currents are loops of electrical current induced within solid conductors by a changing magnetic field in the conductor according to Faraday’s law of induction. Eddy … Continue reading The Ring Launcher Experiment and Eddy Currents

What is Eddy Current?

Eddy currents are circulating currents induced in the body of a solid conductor whenever the magnetic flux linked with it changes. It is called EDDY CURRENT because they are like eddies formed in water. http://youtu.be/zJ23gmS3KHY Also read http://askphysics.com/ask-physics/eddy-currents-applications/

Answer: 
Eddy currents (also called Foucault currents) are currents induced in conductors, when the magnetic flux linked with a solid conductor changes. The change in magnetic flux can ...
