I have been trying, but I still have 3 problems I can't get.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1)A simple generator has a 600 loop square coil 18.0 cm. on a side. How fast (in rev/s.) must it turn in a 0.730 T. field to produce a 120-V. peak output?

I think I need to use the equation Emax=NBAw. N=600 B=.730 A=.0324 Emax=120

I found w to be 8.456 but I didn't know if it was in rev/min or rev/s. So I tried that answer and then tried dividing it by 60 for seconds, but neither answer worked. Any help?

2)A step-up transformer increases 50 V. to 110 V. What is the current in amperes in the secondary as compared to the primary? Assume 100 percent efficiency.

I know the primary voltage is 50V and the secondary voltage is 110V. And I think Vp/Vs=Ip/Is, but I'm not sure how to find the answer w/o one of the currents.

3)A transformer has 32 turns in the primary and 181 turns in the secondary. Assuming 100 percent efficiency, by what factor does it change the voltage?

I think this one is basically the same as number 2, and I just don't understand what I am supposed to do. I think I'm supposed to divide one by the other, but when i put those answers in, they're not right.
