Fleming's right-hand rule (Induction)

Fleming's right-hand rule is used when you want to induce an electrical current in a wire.


If a wire is passed through a magnetic field, an electrical current can be induced in the wire. Fleming's right-hand rule can be used to tell you which direction the current will flow down the wire.

A galvanometer connected between the ends of the wire can be used to verify your prediction.
