Working of an electric bell
- When current flows through the electromagnet it acquires magnetism and attract the armature.
- As the armature bends towards the electromagnet, the gong is struck. But at the same time contact between armature and contact screw gets broken and the circuit gets switched off.
- As the current flow stops, the electromagnet loses it magnetism. It, therefore, no longer attracts the armature.
- The armature gets pulled back to its original position by spring action. It, now, again comes in contact with the contact screw; the circuit gets completed again. The cycle repeats itself and the gong gets struck again. This, in turn, again breaks the circuit.
