...based on the angle. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Figure 30-78 shows a wire that has been bent into a circular arc of radius r = 24.0 cm, centered at O. A straight wire OP can be rotated about O and makes sliding contact with the arc at P. Another straight wire OQ completes the conducting loop. The three wires have cross-sectional area 1.20 mm2 and resistivity 1.70 10^-8 Ωm, and the apparatus lies in a uniform magnetic field of magnitude B = 0.150 T directed out of the figure.Wire OP begins from rest at angle θ = 0 and has constant angular acceleration of 12 rad/s2. As functions of θ (in rad), find (a) the loop’s resistance and (b) the magnetic flux through the loop. (c) For what u is the induced current maximum and (d) what is that maximum?

The attempt at a solution For part a), I solved using the resistivity equation, rho = R*A/l, with l = 2*r+ rθ, and solved for R. For part b), I started with Flux = ∫BdA, took B outside of the integral (since it is uniform). I went to the integral solution for a circle, so I could just plug in the angle to get the area of the circle, which gave me 0.24^2/2 * θ = 2.88E-2*θ. That's my guess of where to go, anyhow. What's throwing me off is I'm given the angular acceleration of the wire itself. I am at a loss of where to go. From worked out problems in the book, the velocity of the loop itself figures into the problem. But that's usually because they're trying to find the emf of the loop itself. Am I overthinking this second part? Should the solution just be Flux = B*2.88E-2*θ?
