1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A wire is moved with constant velocity such that the motion is perpendicular to the length of the wire in a region containing magnetic field perpendicular to the plane of motion. The wire has a resistance R. Will thermel energy be generated in the wire? 2. Relevant equations ##V=BLv## 3. The attempt at a solution Due to induced EMF, positive charges accumulate on one end and negative charge accumulated on the other end. Since the process involves motion of charges (current), then heat energy will be generated. But in an alternative explanation, current flows only in closed loops. So according to ##P=i^2R##, since ##i=0##, heat energy will not be generated. Which answer is correct?
