Applet by Wolfgang Christian 

1. When the applet first appears the
functional form of the position will be x(t) = 7 + 6 sin(t).
2. Change the functional form of the motion to a constant, for example, x = 3.
3. Now change the functional form to x = 2*t.
4. In this applet we induced a voltage in the circuit by changing the area of the loop and changing the magnetic field strength. Is there another way to induce a voltage in the loop? Explain.
