Changing magnetic field

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive method for studying brain function, and possibly for treatment as well. In this technique, a conducting loop is held near a person's head. When the current in the loop is changed rapidly, the magnetic field it creates can change at a rate of {see attachment}. This rapidly

Faraday's Law of Electromagnetic Induction 2

A constant magnetic field passes through a single rectangular loop whose dimensions are 0.35 m x 0.55 m. The magnetic field has a magnitude of 2.1 T and is inclined at an angle of 70° with respect to the normal to the plane of the loop.

The magnetic field perpendicular to a circular loop of wire 17.6cm in diameter is changed from +0.510 T to -0.450 T in 117rms, where + means the field points away from an observer and - toward the observer. Calculate the induced emf.

Magnetic field : key information

A 6.30cm diameter wire coil is initially oriented so that its plane is perpendicular to a magnetic field of 0.740T pointing up. During the course of 0.130s, the field is changed to one of 0.310 T pointing down. What is the average induced emf in the coil?
