Having calculated the magnetic flux through the contour II, induced electromotive force in the same contour can be calculated as well:
III] can spontaneously occur due to change in the local pH, as suggested by the standard electromotive force (reduction) potentials in acidic compared to alkaline conditions, which would resupply the surface of a [Cr.
3]) was added; subsequently, at the time of maximum electromotive force (E), a known volume of the enzymatic calibration solution was added (20 [micro]L of a 20-mg/L solution of bCAII or hCAII or 20 [micro]L of a 200-mg/L solution of hCAI).
While an electric motor is rotating, whether powered or not, it generates an electromotive force (EMF).

And in order to realize how important the introduction of the potential has been in electric measurements, one needs only to remember how most minds in this area had only a nebulous understanding of electromotive force, voltage and electroscopic difference, and how finally by Thomson's potentiometers the most delicate investigations became possible.
Changes in the temperature at the juncture of these different metals induce a change in electromotive force (EMF) between the other ends of the strips or wires.
2] = Blvq was used, where m is the mass of the particle, B is the magnetic field intensity, c is the velocity of electromagnetic field, independent of its inertial frame of reference, q represents a unit charge of 1 coulomb (by defining electromotive force as energy per unit charge,) v is the velocity of the carrier in which the particle exists, and l is its length.
As the magnetic particles passed through copper coils placed at the entrance and exit of each section of the processing system, an electromotive force (end) was generated.
Also this conductance increase and the membrane electromotive force decrease occurred at nearly the same time, which was late in the rising phase of the monophasic action potential.
Under the influence of an electromotive force, the ethylene glycol/water fluid appears to be more aggressive toward the compound.
Patent #8358093B2 - Sample and hold time stamp for sensing zero crossing of a back electromotive force in 3-phase brushless DC motors.
In addition the system has a source of electromotive force applied so that a current I is flowing through the wires: in one of the wires I flows in the positive * direction and in the other wire I flows in the negative x direction.
