There are 3 lessons in this physics tutorial covering Induced Electric Fields. The tutorial starts with an introduction to Induced Electric Fields and is then followed with a list of the separate lessons, the tutorial is designed to be read in order but you can skip to a specific lesson or return to recover a specific physics lesson as required to build your physics knowledge of Induced Electric Fields. you can access all the lessons from this tutorial below.

In this Physics tutorial, you will learn:

  • What happens when we place a copper ring inside a magnetic field?
  • How the electric and magnetic fields are related to each other? Is there any mutual interaction between them or not?
  • What condition must a magnetic field meet to induce a current in a coil?
  • How to express the Faraday's law in terms of the induced electric field?
  • Why it is meaningless to talk about electric potential induced in a coil?


Do you think there is any electric field produced due to induction? Where do you base your opinion?

Do you think a change in electric flux brings the induction of an electric field?

Is there any work done when moving a charge inside a magnetic field?

Can a uniform/non uniform magnetic field produce electricity on static/dynamic charges? Explain your opinion.

In this tutorial, we will discuss about induced electric fields, which are very similar to electric field produced by static charges. However, they have some differences we will explain in the following paragraphs.

Please select a specific "Induced Electric Fields" lesson from the table below, review the video tutorial, print the revision notes or use the practice question to improve your knowledge of this physics topic.
