Definitions for "Lenz's Law"
Keywords:  induce, exert, flux, oppose, magnetic
A basic law which states that an induced current set up by the relative motion of a conductor and a magnetic field always flows in such a direction as to form a magnetic field which opposes the motion.
An induced current has a direction such that its magnetic field opposes the change in magnetic field that induced the current.(Course Material/EddyCurrents/Physics/selfinductance.htm)
an induced current will try to minimise the effect that caused it. Back
