Help me how to solve this problem ?(e.m.f)

    help me how to solve this problem ??(e.m.f)

    A rectangular loop with sides of length a= 1.80 cm and b= 2.10 cm is placed near a wire that carries a current that varies as a function of time: it=2.92 + 1.19t2 where the current is in Amperes and the time is in seconds. The distance from the straight wire to the closest side of the loop is d= 0.290 cm.

    the figure is here : http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/5849/prob09awloop2aa6.gif


    1) What is the magnetic flux through the loop at time t= 2.50 seconds? (Define positive flux into the page.)

    my answer is :

    (mu0*I/2*pi)*b*ln[(d+a)/d]
    =8.59×10-8 T*m^2


    2) What is the induced e.m.f. in the loop at time t= 2.50 seconds?
    (Note that positive emf is clockwise. Compute the rate of change of magnetic flux through the loop to get the e.m.f.. )

    help me how to solve this problem ??

    What's the rate of change of magnetic flux through the loop? You can use your expression from part 1.

    HINT: Maxwell's Equations... which equation has something regarding the change in magnetic flux?
