Imagine a space station module shaped like a cylinder 30 m long and 5 m diameter orbiting close to the earth above the earth's equator. What would be the maximum potential difference that could develop between the ends of the module? How would the module have to be oriented to get this maximum voltage difference? Could this voltage difference be used to supply the station with electric power? If so, how? If not, why not?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com November 24, 2022, 11:38 am ad1c9bdddf
because earth magnetic field is North-South and it's amgnitude is 0.5 Gauss.
<br>Because, the emf induced in a conductor is given by:
<br>e = B*v*l
<br>here, B,v and l must have the perpendicular ...
