(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A coil 3.55 cm radius, containing 480 turns, is placed in a uniform magnetic field that varies with time according to B = (1.20e-2 T/S)t + (3.05e-5 T/s[itex]^{4}[/itex] )t[itex]^{4}[/itex]. The coil is connected to a 620 Ohm resistor, and its plane is perpendicular to the magnetic field. You can ignore the resistance of the coil.

2. Relevant equations

[itex]\Phi[/itex][itex]_{B}[/itex]=BA

ε = - [itex]\frac{\Phi_{B}}{t}[/itex]

3. The attempt at a solution

First I divided by t and removed a t from each term in "B"

r = .0355

N = 480

A = [itex]\pi[/itex](.0355)[itex]^{2}[/itex] = 3.959192142e-3

AN = (3.959192142e-3)(480) = 1.900412228

So all we're left with is:

BAN = 1.900412228 [(1.20e-2 T/S) + (3.05e-5 T/s[itex]^{3}[/itex] )t[itex]^{4}[/itex]]

ε = (2.28e-2 V) + (5.80e-5 V/s[itex]^{3}[/itex])t[itex]^{3}[/itex] should be my final answer but mastering physics says I'm wrong. Please help thanks!

EDIT:

I just found a posting where they multiplied the second term in B (3.05e-5 T/s[itex]^{3}[/itex] )t[itex]^{4}[/itex] by 4. When I did that I got the correct answer! But I don't know why I would multiply the term by 4. Any thoughts?
