Faraday's law Problem 9.7.2

Description

A loop of wire travels from the right to the left through an inhomogeneous magnetic field that is constant is time. (The green line is at x=0 is for your reference.) The induced emf in the loop is shown in Volts in the animation.

Question

 Describe the magnetic field component perpendicular to the computer screen.   Start.

Answer

Bz(x<0)=constant, Bz(x>0)=constant, and Bz(x<0)< Bz(x>0).
