EMF induced in a condoctor moving in a magnetic field.

EMF in a Bullet. At the equator, the earth's magnetic field is approximately horizontal and is directed toward the north and has a value of X.

Part A
Estimate the emf induced between the top and bottom of a bullet shot horizontally at a target on the equator if the bullet is shot toward the east. Assume the bullet has a length of 1 cm and a diameter of 0.4 cm and is traveling at 300

See attached file for full problem description.


Solution Summary

The EMF induced in a bullet moving in earths magnetic field is calculated as well as the magnetic field in a solenoid is derived.
