Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction states that an electromotive force is induced in a loop of copper wire when there is a change of magnetic flux linking the loop. According to this, the induced EMF is equal to the negative of the rate of change of flux. This principle can be tested out with an oscillating magnet that goes through a loop of wire fashioned into a solenoid. This is the case being used in the present experiment. The collected data can be used to quantitatively verify Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction.
