A quantum description of a neutral particle (atom or molecule) with an induced electric dipole moment in a region with an effective magnetic field under the effects of rotation and a linear scalar potential is discussed. It is shown that analytical solutions to the Schrödinger equation can be achieved. Besides, it is shown that the degeneracy of the Landau-type levels is broken and there exists a restriction on the possible values of the cyclotron frequency associated with the Landau-type system.
