A law of electromagnetism which states that, whenever there is an induced electromotive force (emf) in a conductor, it is always in such a direction that the current it would produce would oppose the change which causes the induced emf. If the change is the motion of a conductor through a magnetic field, as in the illustration, the induced current must be in such a direction as to produce a force opposing the motion. If the change causing the emf is a change of flux threading a coil, the induced current must produce a flux in such a direction as to oppose the change. That is, if the change is an increase of flux, the flux due to the induced current must be opposite in direction to the increasing flux. If the change is a decrease in flux, the induced current must produce flux in the same direction as the decreasing flux.
