written by Andrew Duffy
This interactive physics problem focuses on the current induced on a bar moving in a uniform magnetic field. The questions help students explore the various concepts involved by manipulating the Physlet based simulation.

This is part of a collection of similar simulation-based student activities.  See Related Items for a link to the author's full collection of simulations on Electricity and Magnetism, and for an additional simulation designed to extend the concepts in this one.

Boston University Physics Applets: A Moving Bar:

Covers the Same Topic As Boston University Physics Applets: Changing Area in a Magnetic Field

This is a related simulation on changing magnetic flux.  It depicts a bar moving back and forth, representing the area of a loop.   The voltage graph on the right allows users to see how changing the area of the coil can induce an EMF.
