A Boeing 747 with a wingspan is cruising northward at toward Alaska. The field at this location is and points below its direction of travel. Determine the potential difference between the tips of its wings.
Step 11 of 2
We know that the induced emf is equal to the negative rate change of magnetic flux and expression is given by:
Now plug in the required value in the above equation and solve

Determine the potential difference developed across the wings of a Boeing 747 airliner when traveling north at .The wingspan is .Earth’s magnetic field points in a direction below a horizontal line directed north. In solving this problem, follow the outline developed in the previous problem. Note that the magnetic field is not perpendicular to the plane’s velocity.
