What is the flux of the magnetic field through this tile in the vicinity of this tile?

A tile in the horizontal xy plane has an area of 2.0cm^2. Assume that the circulation direction for its boundary is counter clockwise when viwed from above.

What is the flux of the magnetic field through this tile in the vicinity of this tile, the magnetic field is approximately B=300 MN/C in a direction 37 degrees up from the horizontal? And what would be the flux if the magnetic field has a magnitude of 100 MN/C in the +y direction?

Solution Preview

The magnetic flux (phi) due to a magnetic field B through a surface S of area A is defined as:

phi = {B.dA

where { = integral over surface S ;

Note here that both B and dA are vectors and dA=element of ...
