# Does the force on magnet depend on coil, when it is being moved relative to the coil?

I am new to electo-magnetism, so i prefer simple language, the problem is:

When we move a magnet relative to a coil such that one of its face is towards or at the coil, an EMF is induced in the coil in such a way that the magnetic field produced by induced current always oppose the motion of magnet, maintaining the magnetic flux, by applying a force on the magnet.

But does the force on magnet depends on parameters of coil, more specifically its resistance??

I thought this after i read: in this situation, the bar magnet experiences a repulsive force due to the induced current. therefore, a person had to do work in moving the magnet AND THE ENERGY IS DISSIPATED BY HEATING PRODUCED BY THE INDUCED CURRENT.

So, two identical coil with different resistances, will have different heating => different work => different force..

probably i have mistaken something, and thnx in advance.

• I assumed there was no capacity, just R. (Of that the time $RC$ was very short compared with the other characteristic time of the problem). Commented Feb 9, 2019 at 15:45
