## Homework Statement

Im currently in my last year of highschool, and i'm writing a report on AC generators. I've heard a number of different things from different sources. When the coil is perpendicular to the magnetic field, maximum magnetic flux is flowing through the coil. This is then at a minimum when the coil is parallel to the field.

EMF is induced when there is a rate of change of magentic flux through the loop. Why then is EMF at a maximum when the coil is parallel? i.e it was turned from being perpendicular to now being parallel.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

## Homework Equations

EMF = [tex]\Delta[/tex] ( [tex]\phi[/tex]2 - [tex]\phi[/tex]1) / [tex]\Delta[/tex] t

## The Attempt at a Solution

My attempt is my failed understanding of the concept.
