Homework Help: Tricky wording in electrical circuits question

  1. Jul 3, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    When it says, without changing the circuit, does it mean adding something else that is extra or does that mean i have to solve it without closing the switch?

    The switch belongs to the circuit and you can use it.

    Remember that what makes dynamos and motors work is changing flux not constant flux.
