Studies by Heinrich Lenz

It is important to emphasize that the scientist Heinrich Lenz could publicly conclude that the electric current induced had the capacity to produce different effects opposite to its causes. Therefore, Lenz established that the direction of induced electric current occurs so that the magnetic field caused by it opposes the variation of the magnetic field that generated it. Some time later, it was proved that this formulation of Lenz’s law is basically a cause and an effect that opposes the cause. This involved cause is nothing more than the variation of the flow that cuts the conductor. The involved effect referred to is a current, due to the induced voltage, that the field opposes to the cause.

Thus, from a somewhat broader point of view, in all cases of electromagnetic induction, without any exception, whenever a variation in the concatenated flux occurs, a voltage must be induced mrosupply, causing it to automatically tend to establish a current in one direction, which will produce a field as opposed to the variation of the flux that concatenates the turns of the circuit. In addition to the one that the scholar Michael Faraday demonstrated, it appeared to the law of Lenz, founded by the physicist Heinrich E. Lenz.
