P: Electromagnetism (Magnetic Induction)
It is expected that students will apply the concept of magnetic induction to everyday situations.
It is expected that students will:
P1. solve problems for a conductor moving perpendicularly through a uniform magnetic field, involving:
P2. define magnetic flux
P3. calculate the magnetic flux through a loop of wire placed parallel
or perpendicular to a magnetic field
P4. identify, from appropriate diagrams, situations that would produce
an induced emf in a coil
P5. apply Faraday's law to solve problems involving:
P6. apply Lenz's law to determine the direction of the induced
current in a loop of wire
P7. qualitatively describe how a generator uses induction to produce
an electric current
P8. define back emf
P9. solve problems for DC motors involving:
P10. give evidence of current fluctuations due to back emf in
common applications of motors
P11. solve problems for an ideal transformer, involving:
P12. identify a transformer as stepup or stepdown
P13. give examples of the use of transformers in the home, workplace,
and community
