Motional emf

This demonstration exhibits the concept of motional emf. When a conductor is moved through a uniform magnetic field, anemf is generated across its end. This emf can be detected.

In this demonstration, a conductor that is connected to conducting rails is moved inside the field of an electromagnet, in an oscillatory manner. The emf generated is filtered, amplified and seen on an oscilloscope.
