1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I have a question that involves a wire XY (X moving down the page to Y) moving to the right of the page at right angles to a magnetic field that acts out of the paper. The question then asks me which end of the wire will become positively charged. The textbook uses conventional current, and Fleming's right hand rule for induced currents. 2. The attempt at a solution I know that current will move from X to Y as given by Fleming's right hand rule, and I know that conventional current is defined as being in the direction of positive charge flow (the opposite of the actual electron flow). By this logic, I assume that X will be positively charged. The textbook, however, states that Y will be positively charged. Is the textbook wrong, or does Fleming's right hand rule give the direction of actual electron flow, rather than the direction of conventional current.
