    Why is the answer B and not A? Where does the x^2 come from?

    Does the t in the third equation mean time after the rotation has started?
    Yes, if you think about it, the function \omega t in the third equation gives you the angle the coil has turned through relative to the initial point.

    Taking the sine of this angle gives you the component of the peak EMF induced when the coil rotates at an angle theta to the normal of the coil face.

    Hope that helps!

    Not confident at all! I like physics but I don't like exams and the papers this year are so easy to slip up on! You?

    Haven't personally seen them, sorry. Curious as to why it's unit 6 though? Shouldn't it be unit 4?

    It seems that there is no mark scheme for it and your teacher probably downloaded it from this link . Check the last link, unit 6:

    Can someone please help me here?

    The only thing I have trouble with on unit 4 is knowing which hand to use with Generators, motors, emf etc.....

    For some reason it is extremely confusing to me. I understand how to use the actual hand itself but, I can't figure out when I have to use it!

    Help would be much appreciated!

    By Pythagoras, with the side length of 2a, each of the diagonals has a length of 2 \sqrt{2} a.

    As P is at the centre of the square (and the centre of each diagonal), the distance to each charge is \sqrt{2} a

    Motors/charges moving in magnetic fields = left hand rule

    Generators/generating or inducing an emf = right hand rule

    No worries! I guess just always use the left hand rule, except when Generating an EMF, where the Right hand rule is used
