An eager student cycles to college at 12 m/s. The metal handle bars are 60 cm wide and cut through the vertical component of the Earth’s magnetic field that has a flux density of 50 *10^(-6) T. Calculate the e.m.f induced across the handlebars. Explain why no current would flow through the student when he touched the metal parts of the handlebars even if he were a good electrical conductor.
The Attempt at a Solution
i can find the e.m.f:
e.m.f= -3.6 * 10^(-4)
but i can't explain why ...i think it has something to do with F=BIL
any help would be much appreciated
