1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two metal rods are placed on two parallel smooth conducting rails , under uniform B field lines . The metal rod on right-hand side is initially moving at a constant velocity of 3 m/s , while the other one is initially at rest . What would be the subsequent motions of the two rods and what are their final velocities ? Assume resistance of all conducting material is negligible . 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I guess they will eventually go at the same velocity , with their kinetic energy conserved ?then their velocities will be 3 divided by root 2 , rightward.
