1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A conducting bar is moved to the right in a magnetic field going into the page, an electric field is set up in the bar. Is this electric field upwards or downwards. 3. The attempt at a solution i think that because a current is being induced in the bar you use the right hand rule but the current goes the other way in the thumb therefore the electric field is up the bar. Is this correct?
