Unformatted text preview: Instead of moving a rod in a straight line, why not simply rotate the wire? Then, the generator can stay in one place.For a rotating wire, Delta V= vB * L * sin (theta)Since theta is changing with time, theta = wt, where w is the angular speedto translate the angular speed to regular speed, use v =wr, where r is the distance from the axis of rotation to the loop w is actually **omega**w therefore = v/rimagine a sin curve, the x axis is time, and the y axis is Delta V Big V is voltage, little v is speed...
