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

In the figure, a flexible square loop 0.700 m on a side is made of wire of resistance 0.600 Ω. A magnetic field with magnitude 1.70 T is directed onto the plane of the loop. A student crushes the wires together forming a loop of zero area in 0.350 s. Find the total amount of charge flowing through the wire.

2. Relevant equations

Maxwell's equations such as

∫E[itex]\cdot[/itex]dA = Q_{enclosed}/epsilon nought

3. The attempt at a solution

Now I am having trouble starting this question. I am thinking that because the loop is being crushed, the area is going to be changing, which means magnetic flux is changing because [itex]\Phi[/itex]_{B}=BA. And I know that magnetic flux somehow influences electric flux (forget the name of the law for this), so I'll have to use the equation listed above. Any hints please?
