Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye

Unit 6: Magnetism and Induction
Lesson 4 of 6

Objective: Students read about alternating current and experiment with transformers so that they can solve word problems involving transformers.

Big Idea: A transformer, which is two separate coils of wire in close proximity to each other, changes the voltage of an alternating current by the same ratio as the two coils of wire.
