Name and state the principle of a simple ac generator? What is its use?


Expert Answer

Name of Principle: Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction

Principle of A.C. Generator : When a coil is rotated in a uniform magnetic field about an axis perpendicular to the magnetic field, the magnetic flux linked with it changes and an e.m.f is induced across the ends of the coil

Use: A.C. generator converts mec...
