101060110113041010607Electromagnetic Induction and InductanceIn the early 1800s people knew that electric currents could cause magnetic fields, but it was not until Michael Faraday and others did some remarkable experiments that anyone understood how magnetic fields could cause electric currents. Their discoveries changed the course of human civilization profoundly. What we now call electromagnetic induction is the source of the electricity we use and is the basis for technology as diverse as electronics, computers, communications, and television.
