The Interplanetary Magnetic Field

  1. Feb 17, 2010 #1
    I need to calculate an estimate of the voltage that would be imposed in the magnetopause by the interplanetary magnetic field using the law of electromagnetic induction. I can assume the size of the magnetopause to be 10 times the radius of the earth.

    I am not expecting anyone to give me the answer. I just need some advice on how to tackle the problem.

    Thanks a lot.

    There's lots of good websites on the magnetosphere, so check them out.
