when a magnetic field within that loop
a.

c.
d.
changes.
aligns with the electric field.
is at right angles to the electric field.

When you thrust a bar magnet to and
fro into a coil of wire, you induce
a.
b.
c.
d.
direct current.
alternating current.
neither dc nor ac.
alternating voltage only, not current.
When you thrust a bar magnet to and
fro into a coil of wire, you induce
a.
b.
c.
d.
direct current.
alternating current.
neither dc nor ac.
alternating voltage only, not current.
Explanation: Indeed alternating voltage is induced, which
produces alternating current, so we can say that
current as well as voltage is induced in a metal coil.
Hence b is correct.
When a magnet is moved into a wire
coil, an induced current in the coil
produces a magnetic field that
a.
b.
c.
d.
resists motion of the magnet.
attracts the magnet.
has negligible effect on the magnet.
interferes with the electric field.

Explanation: The main difference between a motor and a
generator is the roles of input and output, which is
opposite for each.

d.
input side.
output side.
side with lower power.
None of the above.

Comment: The fewer number of coils on the output side
steps voltage down.

To minimize heat losses for power
transported across the countryside, it
is best that current in the wires is
a.
b.
c.
d.
low.
high.
not too low and not too high.
replaced with voltage.

Comment: High amperage produces large heat losses. So
power at low current (and correspondingly high
voltage) means less heat loss.
Lighting a lamp via
electromagnetic induction
a. bypasses the need of work input.
b. requires work input.
c. may or may not require work input depending
on efficiency.

means of doing so is electromagnetic induction or
otherwise.
