I Faraday's law for constant velocity, area and B-field

  1. Jan 23, 2017 #1
    Hi.

    If a planar wire loop is moved through a homogeneous magnetic field (field lines perpendicular to the loop plane) with constant velocity and no rotation, Lorentz force will move some electrons to one side of the loop, creating a potential difference. But how does this work with Faraday's law
    $$EMF=-\frac{d\Phi}{dt}$$
    when neither the area enclosed by the loop nor its orientation nor the magnetic field are changing?

    Consider the net EMF for the loop.

    Induced emf = rate of change of flux linkage
