    Hi Guys .
    i came a cross this question today which I'm not sure if my explanation of it is correct or not. could anyone correct me on that?
    explain why a transformer is designed so that as much of the magnetic flux produced by the primary coil of a transformer passes through the secondary coil.

    is this because transformers only work if the magnetic flux through them is changing so they've been designed in the way that the magnetic flux produced in primary coil can actually travel through secondary coil as well so the transformer keeps operating.

    The question is a bit vague. The magnetic flux produced by the primary coil should be equal to the magnetic flux passing through the secondary coil so as to increase the efficiency of the transformer. In principle the magnetic flux passing through the secondary cannot be greater than the magnetic flux produced by the primary coil. Transformers only vary the potential difference

    So anything comes in mind why transformers have been designed that way?as you said and i agree the flux has to be same through both coils but What do you think is the reason behind this structure?

    I think to increase the efficiency of the transformer. Transformers are almost 100% efficient
