Q6.14 (f) Figure 6.20 shows a metal rod resting on the smooth rails and positioned between the poles of a permanent magnet. The rails, the rod, and the magnetic field are in three mutual perpendicular directions. A galvanometer connects the rails through a switch . Length of the ,, resistance of the closed loop containing the . Assume the field to be uniform. Suppose K is open and the rod is moved with a speed of in the direction shown. Give the polarity and magnitude of the induced emf
(f) How much power is dissipated as heat in the closed circuit? What is the source of this power?
Current in the circuit = 1A
The resistance of the circuit = 9m
The power which is dissipated as the heat
Hence 9mW of heat is dissipated.
We are moving the rod which induces the current. The external agent through which we are moving our rod is the source of the power.
