 P: 50 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Please look in to the attached file. In that you can see a block conductor is moving within the magnetic field which is acting isto the page. What will be the seperation of the induced charge? will it be 1 or 2? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution By using the right hand rule the direction of current was found and it was from right to left. So i thought that the right side become positively charged left side would have negative charge but the answer was the 1. why? Help me please Attached Thumbnails

Yes, good. That means that positive charges move to the left (same direction as the current), and negative charges move to the right (the opposite direction as the current).
 P: 50 ooohhhh!! I got it know Thanks a lot!!!
