# Induced EMF Moving Current Loop

## Homework Statement

See figure attached.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm having some confusion about the negative sign within this problem.

If you compute the curl of the expression shown in the figure you'll find that it's equal to,

$$-10v_{0} \hat{k}$$

But if we take the direction of the normal of the surface to be

$$-\hat{k}$$

so it points in the same direction that negative sign in his solution should go away, correct?

In the problem they tell you the line integral is in the counter-clockwise direction, the minus sign just means the current flows clockwise.

Hope this helps.
