“What is the relationship between a changing magnetic field and induced voltage?”

Because of Maxwell’s equations, we know that there are fundamental relationships between electricity and magnetism. If we think more in depth about this, wouldn’t it not be too far fetched if there be some some of affect that a changing magnetic field could have on electricity? Well, if the little physicist in you wants to ponder more, then it turns out that this relationship is true. One of the most fundamental physical laws is known as Lenz’s law, which states that a changing magnetic flux causes an induced voltage. For those of you who know calculus, we can state this quantitatively that the time derivative of magnetic flux is equal to the induced EMF
