Postby TGTS0907129» Foucault currents

Explain the term Foucault currents


When a large block of conducting substance is moved through a nonunifrom magnetic field or when in any manner there is a changer, induced currents will exist in eddies through the solid mass. These are referred to as eddy currents. This effect was discovered by the physicist Foucault (1819-1816), and the currents are sometimes referred to as “Foucault currents”.
