### Induced Electric Field

• A changing (in time) magnetic field induces an electric field. So if a magnetic field exists in space and it varies with time, then an electric field will necessarily exist in space.
• The value of the induced electric field is obtained by noting that the integral of E.ds around any closed loop is equal to minus the derivative of the magnetic flux with respect to time; this is nothing but a restatement of Faraday’s law.
• Two examples that illustrate how to evaluate the induced electric field are given in the lecture. In the first example a magnetic field, uniform in space, is slowly turned off. The other example shows how an AC generator works.
