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.
