lens law
"The magnetic field of an induced current is in a direction to produce a field that oppose the change causing it"

0 emf
when the armature is perpendicular to the magnetic field in a generator, you get____
maximum emf

AC current
As the loop rotates from one arm being up to the other being up, the current flow will change direction - producing ____
emf for generator (maximum)
emf = NAβω
is the angular speed of rotation of the loop (2πf)
The____ of rotation of the loop in a generator will determine how often the current changes direction -> f = 60Hz in US
