Problem: When a magnet is plunged into a coil at speed v, as shown in the figure, a voltage is induced in the coil and a current flows in the circuit.If the speed of the magnet is doubled, the induced voltage is ________ .a.) twice as greatb.) four times as greatc.) half as greatd.) unchanged

FREE Expert Solution

The induced emf in the coil is given by Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction:

εind=Blv, where B is the magnetic field, l is length, and v is speed.
