Electromagnetic Induction

Is there a physics hall of fame? If not, then what the heck is electromagnetic induction? Find out in this BrainPOP movie, in which Tim and Moby teach you all about this phunky physical phenomenon! You’ll learn how magnetic fields can create — or induce — an electric current in a wire, and how current running through wires can also create a magnetic field. The discovery of electromagnetic induction was one of the most important advances in the history of science, and Tim and Moby will also tell you how it’s responsible for the widespread use of electricity in the world today. Maybe induction does deserve an award!
