Generating Electrical Voltage
In this interactive resource adapted from the Wisconsin Online Resource Center, learn how a generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. Investigate the principle of magnetic induction by moving a conductor through a magnetic field to see how voltage is generated. Explore factors that influence the amount of voltage generated, such as the angle, speed, and length of the conductor and the strength of the magnetic field. In addition, learn the left-hand rule that describes the rela
