Hyperloop: Voltage

The Hyperloop is a hypothetical new fast transport system between cities, which works by launching pods that carry people through a very low air pressure tunnel. If we model the Hyperloop pod as a hollow metal cylinder with a radius of 1 m1~\mbox{m} and a length of 10 m10~\mbox{m}, what is the maximum voltage difference between the sides of the pod in Volts?

Details and assumptions

  • The magnetic field at the earth's surface is 0.5 Gauss0.5~\mbox{Gauss}.
  • The speed of the pod is 300 m/s300~\mbox{m/s}.
