Problem based on electromagnetic induction – motional emf

A horizontal straight wire 10 m long extending from east to west is falling with a speed of 5.0 m s–1, at right angles to the horizontal component of the earth’s magnetic field, 0.30 × 10–4 Wb m–2. (a) What is the instantaneous value of the emf induced in the wire? (b) What is the direction […]
