    Can you check my solution?PLEASE:)

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Calculate the magnetic flux through a square loop of 2cm x 2cm oriented perpendicular to a magnetic field of 0.5t.

    2. Relevant equations

    θ = BA

    3. The attempt at a solution

    θ = BA = (0.5t)(0.0004m^2) = 2 x 10^-4 Tm^2.

    What do you guys think?

    I think that you should use a capital T for Teslas consistently, particularly in the same equation :devil:

    Otherwise it's fine.

    Note that you might also use the equivalent unit of Webers (Wb) for the flux.

    Wb = Tm2 = Vs
