I'm considering a very simple method of powering a small electronic device from a typical current carrying outlet. I'm trying to make a theoretical prediction to the amount of current I could generate using magnetic induction.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Problem:

I have a straight current wire carrying an alternating current and I put a single loop of wire in around the it, in the perpendicular direction. I need to find out the amount of induced current generated in the loop.

I know I need to use Faraday's law but the AC part is confusing me. All the examples like this I can find involve two coils near each other like in a transformer. I have a straight wire with AC to induce current in a coil.

If anyone could help me out to how I would start this calculation that would be great

kind of like in the first picture here:
