Sliding bar problem, please help.

    Problem #1:
    The problem is this:

    A bar is attached to two rods and its acceleration is increasing towards the right. The bar is located in a uniform magnetic field pointing out of the page, towards you. Thus, the current moves clockwise. Find an equation for the current.

    So far, my only lead is to use Faraday's Law... Any help is extremely appreciated!
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
