Chapter 21 Homework: Physlet #1

The wire on the right is pulled to the right for 5 seconds and then to the left for 5 seconds as shown.  Determine the magnitude of the magnetic field passing through the wire rectangle.  You may pause the simulation and read coordinate values by click-dragging the mouse at any time.  The meter displays the induced emf in millivolts and distance is measured in meters.  Note that current flowing into the + terminal, i.e., counterclockwise, will deflect the meter to the right.  Also note that the current arrow specifies the direction of current flow in the top branch of the loop.  Start.

Help: Plot the voltage as function of time.
