Concept #1: Faraday's Law

Practice: A tightly-wound 200-turn rectangular loop has dimensions of 40cm by 70cm. A constant magnetic field of 3.5T points in the same direction as the normal of the loop. If the dimensions of the loop change to 20cm by 35cm over 0.5s, with the number of turns remaining the same, what is the induced EMF on the rectangular loop?

Example #1: Current in a Circuit with a Changing Magnetic Field

Practice: A square conducting wire of side length 4 cm is in a 2 T magnetic field. It rotates such that the angle of the magnetic field to the normal of the square increases from 30° to 60° in 2 s. What is the induced current on the wire if its resistance is 5 mΩ?

A coil with 50 turns and a radius of 7 cm is placed in a 5 mT external magnetic field, ortiented such that the field is directed straight through the coil. The coil begins to rotate, while simultaneously the magnetic field strength begins to decrease.
