Faraday's Electro-magnetic Induction Ring

Electromagnetic induction is the basis of most electrical machinery. Michael Faraday (1791-1867) was the first to discover that electricity could be made by moving a magnet inside a wire coil. With this knowledge he built the first electric motor, so paving the way for all electrical machinery.
