Question:

A 14.5 cm diameter wire coil is initially oriented so that its plane is perpendicular to a magnetic field of 0.51 T pointing up. During the course of 0.20 s, the field is changed to one of 0.25 T pointing down.

What is the average induced emf in the coil?

Faraday's Law of Electromagnetic Induction:


Faraday's Law of Electromagnetic Induction states that induced emf is directly proportional the rate of change of magnetic flux linked with the coil. Mathematically

{eq}\begin{align} \epsilon =- N\frac{ \Delta \Phi }{\Delta t} \end{align} {/eq}

Answer and Explanation:


Let us recap important information from the question

  • Radius of the coil {eq}r =\frac{ D}{2} =\frac{ 14.5 \ cm }{2} = 7.25 \ cm = 0.0725 \...
