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/

What ere Eddy currents and what is their application?
Rahul asked
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 …
