i am doing some research on java applet simulation on DC motor and AC generator.
http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph11e/generator_e.htm
show an interesting animation of the Dc voltage that resembled a full wave rectification. is that correct?
i thought it will be a constant voltage.

the reason is
i am trying to create a Voltage vs time graph for http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=1266 and i am puzzled what shape it will be like?

ohm law V =IR,
during closed circuit,
if I is constant, and R is a fixed quantity across the split ring, should V is constant?
during open circuit,
I = 0, imply V = V as it is the voltage of the battery
so is it a constant line of voltage V = battery emf?

or is the physics of electromagnetic induction at the loop more complex that and i forgot to consider?

thanks for reply Grin

I think the magnetic field is assumed to be uniform B=B0.
The magnetic flux pass through the coil depends on the angle \theta=\omega t,
assume the coil rotate at constant angular velocity \omega.
i.e. \Psi=\int \vec{B}\cdot d\vec{s}= B A cos(\theta)=B A cos(\omega t)
From Faraday's law, induced voltage V= -\frac{d\Psi}{dt}= BA\omega \sin(\omega t)
So the voltage is a sine wave (without commutator).

i agree with the above analysis that AC generator (without commutator) the emf induced in the coil is a sine wave.

so is it that with a commutator, which flip the current in half cycle rotation, therefore emf induced in the coil will be a |sine| wave?

if that is true, then i understand why the emf induced is |sine| wave.

By the way,
i am certain http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/HBASE/magnetic/motdct.html is accurate for torque vs time is a |sine| wave.

Yes. The commutator flip the current in half cycle to keep the voltage always positive.

For DC motor, there must be a commutator to generate torque in the same direction, otherwise, the ring will not rotate contineously (it will be become an oscillator.)

The adress of Walter Fendt's applet has changed. Now, it's http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph14e/generator.htm On his page there are quite a few other very useful applets: http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph14e/
