Induction furnace

Postby ashoom97 » Tue Aug 27, 2013 7:53 am

I have made a model on an induction furnace. It has a drawback. Can anyone please help me out?
Why does a plate kept on the coil of an induction furnace bounce when current is passed through the primary coil?

The induction coil produces a magnetic field and that may explain the bounce when the power is applied.
