At t=0; the switch was turn from a to b.
Current I will flow throught metal bar, which F=I L B will accelerate meta bar. $m\frac{dv}{dt}=I L B$.
When the metal bar is moving, the changing in magnetic flux will induce voltage $V_i= B L v$
So the equation for the loop is $Vc= \frac{Q_c}{C} = I R + B L v$, where $I=-\frac{dQ_c}{dt}$ $\frac{1}{C} \frac{dQ_c}{dt}=-I =R \frac{dI}{dt}+B L \frac{dv}{dt}= R \frac{dI}{dt}+B L \frac{BLI}{m}$
, $\frac{dI}{dt}=-(\frac{1}{RC}+\frac{B^2L^2}{mR}) I$
the solution is $I(t)=\frac{V_o}{R}(1-e^{-\alpha t})$ ,where $\alpha=\frac{1}{RC}+\frac{B^2L^2}{mR}$

The following is a simulation for the above case:
The charge $Q_c(t)$, the velocity $v(t)$ and the current $I(t)$ are shown (C=1 in the calculation).
