The Alternating Current Flowing through the Primary Coil of the Transformer Creates an Alternating Current in the Secondary coil. Explain how!

The alternating current creates an alternating magnetic field across the transformer. A magnetic field develops in the iron core of the transformer. This causes a potential difference to be induced across the secondary coil.
