Electromagnetic Induction
ELECTROMAGNETIC or MAGNETIC INDUCTION is the production of an electromotive force (i.e., voltage) across an electrical conductor due to its dynamic interaction with a magnetic field . Michael Faraday is generally credited with the discovery of induction in 1831, and James Clerk Maxwell
James Clerk Maxwell
mathematically described it as Faraday\'s law of induction . Lenz\'s law describes the direction of the induced field. Faraday's law was later generalized to become the Maxwell-Faraday equation, one of the four Maxwell\'s equations in James Clerk Maxwell's theory of electromagnetism. Electromagnetic induction
Electromagnetic induction
has found many applications in technology, including electrical components such as inductors and transformers , and devices such as electric motors and generators

Landowner
In common law systems, LAND TENURE is the legal regime in which land is owned by an individual, who is said to "hold" the land. The French verb "tenir" means "to hold" and "tenant" is the present participle of "tenir". The sovereign monarch, known as The Crown
The Crown
, held land in its own right. All private owners are either its tenants or sub-tenants. Tenure signifies the relationship between tenant and lord, not the relationship between tenant and land. Over history, many different forms of LAND OWNERSHIP, i.e., ways of owning land, have been established. A LANDHOLDER/LANDOWNER is a holder of the estate in land with considerable rights of ownership or, simply put, an owner of land

Electrical Resistivity And Conductivity
ELECTRICAL RESISTIVITY (also known as RESISTIVITY, SPECIFIC ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE, or VOLUME RESISTIVITY) is an intrinsic property that quantifies how strongly a given material opposes the flow of electric current . A low resistivity indicates a material that readily allows the flow of electric current . Resistivity is commonly represented by the Greek letter ρ (rho ). The SI unit of electrical resistivity is the ohm -metre (Ω⋅m). As an example, if a 1 m × 1 m × 1 m solid cube of material has sheet contacts on two opposite faces, and the resistance between these contacts is 1 Ω, then the resistivity of the material is 1 Ω⋅m. ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY or SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE is the reciprocal of electrical resistivity, and measures a material's ability to conduct an electric current . It is commonly represented by the Greek letter σ (sigma ), but κ (kappa ) (especially in electrical engineering) or γ (gamma ) are also occasionally used

Electricity
ELECTRICITY is the set of physical phenomena associated with the presence of electric charge . Although initially considered a phenomenon separate from magnetism , since the development of Maxwell's Equations, both are recognized as part of a single phenomenon: electromagnetism . Various common phenomena are related to electricity, including lightning , static electricity , electric heating , electric discharges and many others. In addition, electricity is at the heart of many modern technologies. The presence of an electric charge, which can be either positive or negative, produces an electric field . On the other hand, the movement of electric charges, which is known as electric current , produces a magnetic field . When a charge is placed in a location with non-zero electric field, a force will act on it. The magnitude of this force is given by Coulomb\'s Law . Thus, if that charge were to move, the electric field would be doing work on the electric charge
