A short-circuited solenoid of radius b with n turns rotates at an angular velocity

about the diameter of one of the turns in a uniform magnetic field B. The axis of rotation is perpendicular to the magnetic field direction. The resistance and the inductance of the solenoid are equal to R and L, respectively. Find the current in the solenoid as a function of time

2. Relevant equations

Hint eq: phi = normal vector (dot) Magnetic field (B) s

3. The attempt at a solution

i cant seem to figure out where to start. in order to find the current in the solenoid, do i have to first start with finding the magnetic field (or a specific value of B)? and then plug that into the above eq?
