# Electromotive Force Worksheet

The short form of Electromotive force is EMF. According to the law of Faraday “EMF” is a  voltage generated by a magnetic force.  But in classic physical sense EMF is not a force as it is measured in term of volt, not Newton.

External Work expanded per unit of charge to produce an electrical potential difference accross two open-circuited terminal is known as Electromotive force.

Here, you can find some questions related to “Electromotive force” and their answers:
