- To show the effects of a moving magnetic field opposing Eddy Currents induced in a hollow copper pipe.
The moving magnet has induced circulating currents whose own magnetic field opposes that of the magnet.
Eddy Currents Induced by a Linearly-Moving Magnet video demonstration on Youtube
Note: in the video an aluminum pipe (which is also non-magnetic) is used instead of a copper pipe.
