Electromagnetic Induction: Current in a rotating coil.

Consider a uniform, constant magnetic field pointing in the z-direction with a strength B_0. Put a square loop of wire with resistance R and side length l in the xy-plane at time t=o and spinning about the x-direction with a constant angular velocity omega. What is the current through the loop as a function of time?

Solution Summary

The coil is rotating in a uniform magnetic field. The current in the coil as a function of time is calculated.
