Question
(a) A jet airplane with a 75.0 m wingspan is flying at 280 m/s. What emf is induced between wing tips if the vertical component of the Earth’s field is $3.00 \times 10^{-5} \textrm{ T}$? (b) Is an emf of this magnitude likely to have any consequences? Explain.
1. $0.63 \textrm{ V}$
2. This is an insignificant voltage. It will have no effect on the electronics of the plane.
