A metal strip moving to the right in a B field which is going into the plane of the page.
Can this problem be considered using both Fleming's right and left hand rules?
The Attempt at a Solution
If I consider Fleming's left hand rule: the negative charges in the strip are being moved to the right and so experience a force up (not what it seems to say in the books). Then the strip will have negative charges at the top and positive charges at the bottom.
Or should I think of it as that they are feeling a force to the right (because the strip is being moved) and the current is down? Or maybe Fleming's left hand rule is not for this and is only for a negative charge moving in to a B field and it tells the direction of the force on it.
But is the current I in Fleming's left hand rule the direction of the actual negative charges or the conventional current of positive charges?
If I consider Fleming's right hand rule: The force is to the right and the emf is up. But is the emf direction from + to - or from - to +?
