If I move a strip of copper mechanically with my hand through a uniform magnetic field will their be a drift velocity? And if so will the drift velocity be in the same direction as the moving copper strip? What would the magnitude of the drift velocity be if this happens? Can you have a drift velocity without a current in the copper strip? This confusion comes about after reading a my physics book. It says that you can use the Hall Effect to measure the drift velocity of charge carriers. Thanks!
