The Lenz Effect: Aluminum, Moving Magnets, Electricity, And Magnetism


Aluminum is not attracted to magnets. However, if the aluminum, or the magnet are moving, something strange happens.

-The motion creates tiny electric currents in the aluminum can.

– These currents create a magnetic field.

– The magnetic field created around the can interacts with the magnetic field around the magnetic.

This video shows several demonstrations to clearly explain how the Lenz effect works.
