Hey guys! I'm brand new to the forum and getting back into electromagnetics again. I had a question on one of my homework problems

If a wire with a diameter of 0.0254m is carrying a DC current of 1000A, how much power is delivered to the 100ohm resistive load in the loop.

(The picture shows an infinitely long wire carrying the current, and a square current loop with 1m sides floating above it 10m with a 100ohm resistor on one the top side of the loop)

I believe you are supposed to use the equation for Flux intensity and induced emf, but I'm not sure. I managed to calculate flux, but I'm not sure how to apply it in the given problem statement.

This is as far as I got, see attached image. I can't make the correlation. I think it has something to do with mutual inductance, but every formula/book I read has some time varying value.

edit: Here's what I've done so far (whether or not it's right...no clue)
