Homework Statement
A coil with 150 turns, a radius of 5.0 cm, and a resistance of 12 Ω surrounds a solenoid with 300 turns/cm and a radius of 4.3cm; see the figure. The current in the solenoid changes at a constant rate from 0 to 1.8 A in 0.12 s.
Homework Equations
B from solenoid = μ*n*I(t)
Induced emf = d(BA)/dt
The Attempt at a Solution
First I found the magnetic field generated by the solenoid as a function of time:
B(t) = (1.8/.12)*μ*n*t
Then found induced emf in the coil using d(B[itex]_{solenoid}[/itex]*A[itex]_{coil}[/itex])/d(t)
Then divided that result by the coil's resistance to get induced current, which I found to be .000093 A. However, this is wrong and I'm not sure where I'm making a mistake.
Thanks
