Textbook Problem

A loop of wire is placed in a uniform magnetic field. (a) For what orientation of the loop is the magnetic flux a maximum? (b) For what orientation is the flux zero?

(a)

To determine
The orientation of the loop for which the magnetic flux is maximum.

Explanation
.

The formula associated with magnetic flux and area of the loop is given by,

ϕ=BAcosθ

  • θ is the angle between magnetic field vector and area vector of the loop.
  • A is the area of the loop,
  • B is the magnetic field.

When θ becomes 0, cos0°=1

(b)

To determine
. The orientation of the loop such that magnetic flux is zero.
