From my GCSE studies, near to the end of a module, I was told that when an electrical current flows through a conductor, a magnetic field will be induced. Can a magnetic field create an electrical current?
I ask this because I hear about "free energy" that uses a magnetic core to move a copper coil to create a current (which in turn, I guess, will aid the magnetic field in creating movement). For this to be possible, wouldn't the magnet need to be moved along the coil? In the example, the magnet is stationary.
I guess my actual question is (based on the answer to the original question) can a stationary magnet induce a current in a conducting wire?
