    Is the book's answer correct? Doesn't the flux increase when you increase the number of turns of wire? I'm getting conflicting information from multiple places: https://physics.stackexchange.com/q...-of-turns-in-a-loop-part-of-the-magnetic-flux the dude says N (number of turns of wire) affects ϕ.
    Also: http://i.imgur.com/hzwGz0n.png the book even plainly states that. However, nowhere in the book is N included in the ϕ=BA equation.
    What's going on!?
    I have a test on this area in 4 hours and i need to know this

    The EMF in a coil is certainly dependent on the number of turns of the coil. You can think of it as being the difference between the area of a circle and the area of a helix.
