# Definition of induced voltage

• Fibo112

#### Fibo112

I am asked to caluculate the induced voltage between the two sides. To me it is confusing what is meant since the field is nonconservative. Is the question phrased in an unclear way or am I missing something about the actual definition of the voltage between two points.

Isn't it just dφ/dt?
That's my first thought on the matter. Are you looking for more than that?

Maybe I was just overthinking it. Usually when I want to figure out the voltage between two points I calculate the work needed to move a charge from one point to the other. Since this is not well defined here I was unsure how to proceed. I guess here since there is only one closed circuit they are talking about the work done when traveling once around this circuit, which is well defined.

edit: they are not asking for the emf for one loop but for traveling from one side to the other, I have to think on this some more

for traveling from one side to the other,
If B is constant then it is necessary for the loop to change area if you want to induce an emf.

If B is constant then it is necessary for the loop to change area if you want to induce an emf.
this I know

wouldn't the solution here depend the relationship of the resistances of the different components of the loop?
