A short paper demonstrating how the motion dependent component in Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction can be obtained by taking the curl of the vxB component in the Lorentz force. It is then stated that the velocity term in vxB refers to the absolute velocity through a dense sea of electrons and positrons which, like the atmosphere, is entrained with the Earth's orbital motion by gravity.
