First slide
Motional EMF

A metallic rod of mass per unit length 0.5 kg m-1 is lying horizontally on a smooth inclined plane which makes an angle of 300 with the horizontal. The rod is not allowed to slide down by flowing a current through it when a magnetic field of induction 0.25 T is acting on it in the vertical direction. The current flowing in the rod to keep it stationary is


Mass per unit length of a metallic rod

ml=0.5 kg m-1

Let I be the current flowing. 

For equilibrium,


I=mglBtan30°=0.5×9.80.25×3=11.32 A
