Eddy Current 1

Eddy Current

Eddy Current Eddy currents are loops of electrical current induced within conductors by a changing magnetic field in the conductor according to Faraday’s law of induction. Eddy currents flow in closed loops within conductors, in planes perpendicular to the magnetic field. When a changing magnetic flux is applied to a bulk piece of conducting material Read more about Eddy Current[…]

Characteristics of Standing Waves

Characteristics of Standing Waves When two identical waves moving in opposite directions interfere, it results in a standing wave. These waves are characterized by the zero displacement locations which are fixed and are called as nodes and locations of maximum displacements called as antinodes. 1) Standing waves can be transverse or longitudinal. 2) The disturbance Read more about Characteristics of Standing Waves[…]

Co – Efficient of Friction between a Body and Wedge

Co – Efficient of Friction between a Body and Wedge If we slide (or) try to slide a body over a surface, the motion is resisted by a bonding between the body and the surface. This resistance is represented by a single force and is called friction force. The force of friction is parallel to Read more about Co – Efficient of Friction between a Body and Wedge[…]

Refrigerator (Or) Heat Pump

Refrigerator (Or) Heat Pump A refrigerator of heat pump is basically a heat engine run in reverse direction. It essentially consists of three parts: 1) Source: At higher temperature . 2) Working Substance: It is called refrigerant liquid ammonia and freon works as working substance. 3) Sink: At lower temperature . The working substance takes Read more about Refrigerator (Or) Heat Pump[…]
