Light is a electro-magnetic wave. It has varying electric and magnetic field. For me light behaves similar to the magnetic field generated by an alternating current. Physics has taught me that a copper coil in a varying magnetic field produces electricity. If this is the case, then light is composed of varying magnetic field and it should be able to produce electricity from a copper coil.
I haven't done this experiment. Has anyone done this experiment? Have you observed electricity. If you didn't observe electricity can you explain me why?
