How do you calculate magnetic flux for maxwells equation?

    Flux is defined as (Area Perpendicular to field) x (magnetic field). If a magnet is traveling through a coil of wires. How do you figure out the area perp to the field?

    Is the area of a coil defined as one coil or the all of the coils?

    If the current is separated then defined as the number of currents.
