One wire vs multiple wires (induction)

Passing one wire perpendicular (at 90°) through a magnetic field will create an electrical current.

NOTE:

This is called "the generator effect" because this is how we generate electricity.

 

But what happens when there is more than one wire passing through the magnetic field?

As we can see, more wires means more electrons per second which means more current.
