From what I have read, as a conducting rod moves perpendicular to a uniform magnetic field, this will lead to a change in magnetic flux and therefore an emf will be induced (area being swept as the conducting rod moves).
However, in terms of eddy currents, I have been told that when the metal plate is moving perpendicular to and within the uniform magnetic field, there is not change in magnetic flux and therefore no induced emf.
As the conducting rod moves and there is an induced emf (and therefore change in magnetic flux), how is it that there is no induced emf in the form of eddy currents as the metal plate is within the uniform magnetic field.
To me, I don't see where the difference lies between the two scenarios, they are both conductors moving within a uniform magnetic field.
Could someone please explain to me where my understanding is flawed.
