See explanation.

Work Step by Step

$$\epsilon = vBL$$ Consider the units of the right hand side of this equation. The units of tesla are a newton per amp-meter. $$\frac{m}{s}\frac{N}{A\cdot m}m$$ An ampere is a coulomb per second. $$\frac{m}{s}\frac{N \cdot s}{C\cdot m}m$$ $$\frac{N \cdot m}{C }$$ A newton-meter is a joule. $$\frac{J}{C }$$ A joule per coulomb is a volt, which are the units of emf.
