This one is really getting to me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the current through section PQ (the middle column of the circuit) of length a, a =.65 m. The circuit is located in a magnetic field whose magnitude varies with time according to the expression B(t) = .001t. Assume the resistance per length of wire is .1 ohm/m.

Diagram:

key: I: piece of circuit

X: direction of B field

I started by using Faraday's law of inductance,

Emf = -d Phi_m/dt

but Im not exactly sure how this will help me. I foresee a kirchoff analysis, but I'll be damned if I can figure out how I arrive there
