# Descriptio= n of the Simulation

In the Faraday's Law simulation made by PhET, learners can move a magnet= freely within the playing space. As the magnet moves near a coiled wire, a= n induced current is created in the wire which creates voltage through the = circuit which is then measured by a voltmeter, and illuminates a light bulb= . # Learning Outcomes

### Speed and Flux

The magnetic fields that radiates from the North and South poles of the = magnet is what causes the induced charge. The magnetic field crosses the co= iled wire which creates flux. The faster the magnetic field is moved over t= he coil, the more flux is created. Flux is measured with a volt meter as an= induced charge. The light bulb is there to illustrate the effect of the in= duced charge.

### Alternating poles and current (advanced learning)

A more advanced topic is related to the flux caused by alternating the p= oles. By alternating poles you can:

• create flux
• change the "direction" of voltage as indicated by the voltage meter (th= is is called alternating current)
• the light bulb will light regardless of the direction of the current
