We will be selling items that all use electromagnetic induction , and we will also be giving detailed explanations about those items and their creators. Electromagnetic Induction is the production of voltage across a conductor moving through a magnetic field.

Electric Generator- $940.99

Generators are the electricity generating gadgets that are used in practically everything that uses electricity. The basic purpose of an electrical generator is to convert kinetic energy into electrical energy. For fulfilling this energy conversion process, in between the two poles of magnet, a coil of wire is placed. This coil is made to rotate at a very high speed. The electric generator was invented by Michael Faraday, and he was the founder of electrical induction. By his research on the magnetic field around a conductor carrying a direct current that Faraday created the the idea of the electromagnetic field in Physics. This invention also allows for separate power sources which allow for power in case of emergencies.

Electric Transformer- $1035.99

Transformers perform the function of changing the electric current from one potential level to another potential. Many times, the current which comes from the power station is of a higher voltage and not suitable for domestic use. In such cases the potential level of the electricity is dipped down with the help of transformers. This invention was also created by Michael Faraday. Transformers power much of the electricity in many neighborhoods and allow for electricity to power the homes of many families.

Induction Cooker- $903.00

Induction cooking uses induction heating to directly heat a cooking vessel, as opposed to using heat transfer from electrical coils or burning gas as with a traditional cooking stove. An induction cooker transfers electrical energy by induction from a coil of wire into a metal vessel that must be ferromagnetic. Bill Moreland and Terry Malarkey were the heads of a development team that decided to apply electrical induction to cooking items in order to create a faster and more efficient way to heat food.
