I am learning about magnetic fields, but I get confused with the way energy is transmitted in Lenz's law.
As I read on the question Explaining Lenz's Law without conservation of energy:
Let's say you have a circular loop conductor. If you bring the north pole of a magnet towards the loop, current induced in the loop will be anti-clockwise when viewed from the side of the magnet. Remember, if the current is in the anti-clockwise direction it acts the same as a north pole. So, the north pole of the magnet and north pole of the coil repel each other. Thus, the induced EMF opposes the change in magnetic flux. Therefore, work has to be done in order change the magnetic flux linked with the coil. This work done will be converted into electrical energy. - @Immortal Player's answer
According to the phenomena, the
induced current generated a repulsive force on the magnet, which we are moving and exerting effort opposite to the force from the coil. That energy causes us to generate electric energy. So, there is a moving magnet (changing flux), and an induced current, which produces repulsion of the magnet and generates an EMF.
Considering the starting moment how is a current induced to generate repulsion? For there to be repulsion, there must be an induced current, which means electrical energy. (When there is an induced current, that means there is electrical energy.) At the starting moment, where does that energy come from?
As per the Lenz's law energy conservation description:
The induced current electrical energy → causes repulsion → resulting in needing to spend mechanical energy to oppose the magnetic repulsion from the coil to move the magnet → which creates an induced current as electrical energy.
So, from where did the initial induced current get its energy?
It is very complicated for me to describe my concern, but if you can arrange this question to ask my question more clearly I would be thankful to you for editing the content without distorting the question.
