Magnetic field and capacitor

  1. Mar 25, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A 10-turn coil of wire having a diameter of 1.0 cm and a
    resistance of 200m Ω is placed in a 1.0 mT magnetic field. The
    coil is connected to an uncharged 1.0µF capacitor. The coil is
    quickly pulled out of the magnetic field. Determine the total
    charge which flows onto the capacitor.

    2. Relevant equations
    I am not sure.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have no idea how to approach this question as I do not know which equation to use.
    All I know is that:
    N = 10
    r = 0.01
    R = 0.2
    B = 10^-3
    C = 10^-6
    Now.. figuring out which equation to use is the problem..
    If you could point me to the right direction I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks for your help.

    the radius isn't .01 like u said it is .005 being that the diameter is 1 cmu need to divide that by 2 to get the radius
