More specifically, voltage is induced in a loop of wire if there is a change in the

When a magnet is plunged in and out of a coil of wire, voltage is induced in the coil. If the rate of the in-and-out motion of the magnet is doubled, the induced voltage
If instead the number of loops in the coil is doubled, the Induced voltage

A rapidly changing magnetic field in any region of space induces a rapidly changing electric field
which in turn induces a rapidly changing magnetic field
This generation and regeneration of electric and magnetic fields makes up
