Homework Help: Faradays law of induction

  1. Feb 21, 2005 #1
    Ok, I need a lot of help on this one. A single conducting loop of wire has an area of 7.4*10^-2 m^2 and a resistance of 110 ohms. Perpendicular to the plane of the loop is a magnetic field of strength 0.18 T. At what rate (in T/s) must this field change if the induced current in the loop is to be 0.22 A?

    So far all I can figure out is that Phi=BA. And I don't think that has anything to do with this problem. :grumpy:

    Thanks for any and all help.

    Well, how do you relate the change in flux to the induced EMF? And once you have that, just use ohm's law to get the current.

    you should know these formulae from your text

    flux [tex] \Phi = \int B dA Cos \theta[/tex]
    and induced emf [tex] E = \frac{d \Phi}{dt} [/tex]
    and also the induced Emf is just live a voltage really so E = IR.

    now try and rearrange these equatios to solve
