- To show that the current is induced in a coil when magnetic lines of force cut the conductors.
Terminals of the coil are connected to a galvanometer. Inserting a magnet will produce a deflection on the meter in one direction. A motionless magnet will bring the pointer to zero. Retraction of the magnet will deflect the meter pointer in the opposite direction.
