6.16 Generator

Describe the generation of electricity by the rotation of a magnet within a coil of wire and of a coil of wire within a magnetic field; also recall the factors which affect the size of the induced voltage

In a generator a magnet is rotating near a coil of wire. This rotatory motion induces a current in the wire generating electricity. On the other hand you could also rotate the wire inside a magnetic field

It is important to note that because of the rotations Alternating Current (AC) is produced
