To clarify my previous post, you need a general expression that is valid when the charge and current vary with time.

I = d Q / d t?

Correct. So put together to get a differential equation using the alternate expression for I, Post #41.

d Q / d t = (1 / R) (d Φ / d t)

d (B A N / R) / d t = (1 / R) (d B A N / d t)
d (μ0 N I A N / R) / d t = (1 / R) (d μ0 N I A N / d t).

Multiply both sides of the first equation by dt and integrate. What do you get?

d Q = (d t / R) d Φ
Q = t Φ / R?

No. You have an extra dt on the right that doesn't belong.

d Q = (d t / R) d Φ
Q = t Φ / R?
Time term should not show up in the equation. That's why you were asked to multiply both the sides by dt. That will eliminate the time variable.

Q = Φ / R = B A N / R?

Bingo. Calculate the right side with numbers and you are done.

B = μ0 n I = 4 π * 10-7 * 1000 * 4 = 5 * 10-3 T.
Q = 2000 * (8 * 10-4) * (5 * 10-3) / 60 = 1.33 * 10-4 C

Q = 2000 * (8 * 10-4) * (5 * 10-3) / 60 = 1.33 * 10-4 C
That should be 1.34*10-4..
Use sensitivity of the galvanometer to find the number of divisions.

θ = a Q = 2 * 1.34 * 10-4 = 2.68 * 10-4.

Well, 1.34*10-4 is the actual charge passed through the galvanometer. You have sensitivity as 2 divisions/ microcoulomb. How would you calculate the no of divisions from this?

θ = a Q = deflections of the galvanometer.

Update
1.34 * 10-4 C → 1.34 * 10-4 / 10-6 = 134 μC.

134 * 2 = 268. I think this should be right.

Right.
