Problem 29.9: Find the magnetic field
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
The wire on the right is pulled to the right for 5 s and then to the left for 5 s as shown. Determine the magnitude of the magnetic field passing through the wire rectangle. You may pause the animation and read coordinate values by click-dragging the mouse at any location (position is given in centimeters and emf is given in microvolts, 10-6 V). Restart.
