One is that there is a time derivative, which should create a term of the form w * sin (wt). That eliminates A, D, and E, the first two because they have cosine instead of sine, and the last one because there is no w that comes out front out of the cos(wt) as a result of the chain rule. The second is that since the inner loop is said to be very small compared to the larger loop, you can take the field to be roughly the same over the inner loop, and so the flux should be proportional to the area of the inner loop, which goes with a^2. All of the parenthetical terms are the same, so this leaves only B. Then I guess for free you get the fact that there should be a single factor of b in the bottom. That analysis seems faster to me than unit checking.   dicerandom 20060906 20:46:32  There's another way to think through this which doesn't involve having to remember (or derive) the magnetic field of the loop.
We know that the field generated by the loop will have a cos(wt) dependence since the current has that dependence. Thus the EMF must have a sin(wt) dependence and we can eliminate the options involving cos(wt). Of the remaining options only (B) has the proper units (mu0 ~ gauss/(meter*ampere) ).

But B is the answer...

This doesn't work. If both (a) and (b) go to zero.

+1 for this solution

  wangjj0120 20080828 07:55:38  I think is incorrect because is the magnetic field only at the center. Magnetic field induced by the outer current should be a function of r, that is B=B(r). To get the magnetic flux, we should integrate instead of .

It said approximately equal to.

  ivalmian 20080403 21:54:38  Just a little notice  you can't use Ampere Law for this problem, instead use BiotSavart.
syreen 20130912 19:15:46 
Why not? I can't figure out why, but Amperes gives me an e0 instead of pi and switches b and a.
