Homework Help: Totally lost on magnetic flux question

  1. Jul 5, 2004 #1
    A uniform magnetic field of 0.0300T points vertically upward. Find the magnitude of the magnetic flux through each of the 5 sides of the open topped rectangular box, given the dimesions of the box are, length = 0.335m width = 0.12m, and Height = .10m. Find Wb through long side, short side, and bottom.

    I have no idea where to start for this question any type of help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Depends on how the box is positioned in relation to the magnetic field.

    For example, what is the amount of magnetic flux through a surface that is parallel to the magnetic lines of force?
