Lab 5 Brown 2
Introduction:
During this lab, my goal will be to predict the induced current using a generator. I will be
using Fleming’s Right-Hand and Left-Hand Rule in order to predict the direction that the current
will flow. By also using Lenz’s Law in this lab it will explain and help to predict which direction
the current will flow.
I hypothesize that the electrons will flow in a counterclockwise direction since the
magnetic bar is to the left of the rings. If the bar were to the right of it, I think they would flow
in a clockwise motion.
Data:
I found that when the water is hitting the South side of the magnet, there is less energy being
transferred to the lightbulb. It is hard to see the difference in the screenshots but when the
water hit the North side, it lights up brighter.

Lab 5 Brown 3 The chart below shows the data for the different number of loops that are possible during the lab. The blue columns represent the South side of the magnet as it rotated, and the red columns represent the North side as it rotated. Based on these calculations, as the number of loops ...
