Hey everyone, I'm currently taking an Eletricity and Magnetism course and I'm having dificulty answering this problem. I've gone to my tutor, but sadly, he hasn't taken E+M for a while now and couldn't recall off the top of his head how to go about solving this. We went through my book together, but couldn't find any examples pertaining to this type of problem. (We did find examples of induced EMF's obviously, but making the leap to a spinning rod seems to be too great a task)
Anyways, here is the problem I'm working on:
A metal rod is spinning on an axis that is located in the middle of the rod, and perpendicular to the rod's length. If the rod is in an external magnetic field that is parallel to the axis the rod is spinning on, how would I go about finding the induced emf?
The rod's thickness is negligible but has length L. It's spinning at 1500 rev/s and the magnetic field is 7.5T
Any pointers would be appreciated!
