Homework Help: Faraday Law problem

  1. Jan 8, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A long solenoid of radius a , is driven by an alternating current , so that the field inside is sinusoidal: B(t)=B0cos(omega*t)z-hat. A circular loop of wire, of raduis a/2 and resistance R, is placed inside the solenoid and coaxial with it. Find the current induced in the loop , as a function of time.

    2. Relevant equations

    [tex]\Phi[/tex]=[tex]\int[/tex]B[tex]\cdot[/tex] da


    3. The attempt at a solution

    [tex]\epsilon[/tex]=[tex]\int[/tex]omega*B0sin(omega*t) da, since the area of a circle is pi*r2, da is just pi*r2


    episilon is supposed to be the electromotive force BTW.

    Excuse me, but I think among 'da=pi*r^2', r should be a/2

    What about my remaining solutions?
