    1)A car moves on a plane road. The induced e.m.f in the axle connecting the 2 wheels is maximum when it moves:
    a)eastward at the equator
    b)westward at the equator
    c)eastward in the latitude 45 degrees
    d)at the poles
    The answer to this given in my book is (d) at the poles. I think it is because the strength of the field is maximum at the poles. I have my own doubts whether the field is maximum at the poles. Its just a guess. Please guide me.

    the emf is e=vBl sin a
    where v is velocity, B is the magnetic field at that point and l is the distance between the points, and a is the angle between the movement and the magnetic fields
