Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction is one of the basic laws of electromagnetism and it dates back to the year 1831. It states that when an electric conducting circuit is placed in a changing magnetic field, an electromotive force is induced in the circuit which is directly proportional to the rate of change of flux linkage. One of Maxwell's equations covers the time varying aspect of electromagnetic induction and is also referred to as Faraday's law.
