1. A conducting bar of length l and mass m rests at the left end of the two frictionless rails of length d in the figure. A uniform magnetic field of strength B points upward. In which direction, into or out of the page, will a current through the conducting bar cause the bar to experience a force to the right? Find an expression for the bar's speed as it leaves the rails at the right end. Express your answer in terms of the variables l, I, B, m, and d. 2. F = Il x B 3. By the right hand rule, the current must be flowing "into the page." However, it isn't clear to me how to get the velocity expression. My instinct would be that v is directly proportional to I, B, and d and inversely proportional to l and m.
