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.
This lesson builds the equation for induced voltage for a conductor moving through a magnetic field: V = BLv., where V is the induced voltage, B is the magnetic field, L is the length of the conductor in that field, and v is the speed the conductor moves through the field. This is for the simplest case, where B, L, and v are mutually perpendicular. Bring the cross product sine in later.
