This is part of the classroom curriculum I developed for use with my high school physics students.
The instructor guides students through this activity via classroom discussion. The activity is a springboard for that discussion. This is not intended as a homework or independent activity.
Beginning with V = BLv, we work our way toward the full expression of Faraday's law, and note the details. Some details are important; some not so much. At the core is the fact that the induced voltage is the rate at which flux changes. After the derivation, we look at why a conductor moving through a magnetic field experiences a force opposing the motion (Lenz's law).
