## Homework Statement

A coil with 253 turns of wire, a total resistance of

*28 Ohms*, and a cross-section area of 0.36m^2 is positioned in a plane perpendicular to the field of a powerful electromagnet.

What average current is induced in the coil during the 0.33s that the magnetic field drops from 2.2T to 0.0T? Answer in units of A.

## Homework Equations

E = BA / t

V = IR

## The Attempt at a Solution

EMF = Change in B * Area / time

= (2.2 * .36) / .33

I plug that into V = IR

V = IR

[(2.2 * .36) / .33] = I * 28 Ohms

I = [(2.2 * .36) / .33] / 28 =

**0.0857142857A**

However I get the wrong answer.

I think it has something to do with the 253 coils of wire but I'm not sure.

Any help is appreciated.
