A metal bar with a length of 0.30 m and mass of 0.5 kg is free to slide (no friction) on a set of vertical rails. The rails and bar together have a resistance of 500 ohms. The rails lie in a horizontal magnetic field with a strength of 0.04 T. The mass falls under the combined influence of gravity and magnetic forces with a constant speed.
