  Electromagnetic induction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Electromagnetic induction is the production of an electrical potential difference (or voltage) across a conductor situated in a changing magnetic flux.
Michael Faraday is generally credited with having discovered the induction phenomenon in 1831 though it may have been anticipated by the work of Francesco Zantedeschi in 1829.
Electromagnetic induction underlies the operation of generators, induction motors, transformers, and most other electrical machines.

 electromagnetic induction
When magnetic tape is driven past the playback head (a small coil) of a tape recorder, the moving magnetic field induces an emf in the head, which is then amplified to reproduce the recorded sounds.
The direction of an electromagnetically-induced current (generated by moving a magnet near a wire or by moving a wire in a magnetic field) will be such as to oppose the motion producing it.
English scientist Michael Faraday proposed three laws of electromagnetic induction: (1) a changing magnetic field induces an electromagnetic force in a conductor;; (2) the electromagnetic force is proportional to the rate of change of the field; and (3) the direction of the induced electromagnetic force depends on the orientation of the field.

 Causality, Electromagnetic Induction and Gravitation
Starting with an analysis of causality in the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction, the author discovers a series of heretofore unknown or overlooked electromagnetic interdependencies and equations.
Another similarly important discovery is that Lenz's law of electromagnetic induction is a manifestation of the previously ignored electric force produced by the time-dependent electric currents.
Continuing his analysis of causal electromagnetic relations, the author finds that these relations are closely associated with the law of momentum conservation, and that with the help of the law of momentum conservation one can analyze causal relations not only in electromagnetic but also in gravitational systems.

 electromagnetic induction and inertia
We do not know the fine detail of the electron’s electric field structure, only the way it falls off as the square of the distance when we are some way away from the electron (in terms of the electron size).
We cannot suspect the laws of induction, which are well-proven - electric motors work because induced fields containing energy, nor can we suspect the laws of relativity, which are again well proven, but there is little doubt the two are in conflict.
Bear in mind that electromagnetic waves propagate by a falling magnetic field creating a rising electric field, and vice-versa, while moving electrostatic fields simply generate magnetic fields in situ.

 Applications of electromagnetic induction
Electromagnetic induction is an incredibly useful phenomenon with a wide variety of applications.
Induction is used in power generation and power transmission, and it's worth taking a look at how that's done.
Rather than using a spinning coil in a constant magnetic field, another way to utilize electromagnetic induction is to keep the coil stationary and to spin permanent magnets (providing the magnetic field and flux) around the coil.

 Rare-Earth Magnets - Electromagnetic Induction
While Oersted's surprising discovery of electromagnetism paved the way for more practical applications of electricity, it was Michael Faraday who gave us the key to the practical generation of electricity: electromagnetic induction.
Faraday discovered that a voltage would be generated across a length of wire if that wire was exposed to a perpendicular magnetic field flux of changing intensity.
This phenomenon is put into obvious practical use in the construction of electrical generators, which use mechanical power to move a magnetic field past coils of wire to generate voltage.

 Electromagnetic Induction   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Because of the laws of electromagnetic induction, this changing magnetic field must in turn create a changing electric field in the space surrounding the inductor.
So, the electric field created by induction acts on the charged sphere (F = Eq) but the electric field of the charged sphere has nothing to act on in return.
Since EM induction is such a well known area of electromagnetism, my assumption is that this must not be the case.
