Homework Help: Emf in a loop of radius a=1 as a function of time.

  1. May 17, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A plane EM wave in Vaccum is given by E = y Eo ei (kz-wt) with Eo = 1 V/m( real valued)
    and wavelength λ= 10 m. A circular loop of radius a =1 m is located with its center at origin but Oriented so that a diameter lies along the z-axis while the plane of the loop makes an angle φ with y-axis.
    Find the emf in the loop as a function of time and compute its maximum amplitude in Volts for optimal φ.

    2. Relevant equations

    The given EM wave in vacccum is E= y Eo exp i(kz-wt)

    Hint: You can assume λ>>a to calculate the flux.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    At least give me an Idea on this how to approach this problem.. iam in need really..
