At a certain location, the Earth's magnetic field has a magnitude of 5.6 x 10^−5 T and points in a direction that is 65° below the horizontal. Find the magnitude of the magnetic flux through the top of a desk at this location that measures 110 cm by 62 cm

2. Relevant equations

flux = BAcos(theta)

3. The attempt at a solution

flux = (5.6x10^-5)(.682)(cos65)

flux = 1.614 x 10^-5 Wb (which is incorrect). Where did I go wrong?
