I need help understanding how to solve a problem given by my professor for homework.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Please see the attached image. In this problem, there is an electric circuit with B=0.15 Tesla. There are 2 conductors moving in either direction - the left is at v = 4 m/s, the right is v =8 m/s. The resistance is 10 Ohms and 15 Ohms respectively. The length of the conductors is 1.2m. The professor wants to know the current in the 5 Ohm resistor in the middle of the picture. He said that Kirchoff's Law would be essential in solving this problem.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

James
