## Answers ( )

The correct answer is c

Explanation:

Flow is defined by

Ф =  B . A

bold letters indicate vectors.

The magnetic field is directed to the y axis, The area of ​​the coil is represented by a vector normal to the plane of the coil, so to have a flux

i.i = j.j = k.k = 1

and the tori scalar products are zero

a) If the coil must be in the xy plane so that its normal vector is in the Z axis, so there is no flux

b) if the coil is in the plane yz the normal veto is in the x axis, so the flux is zero

C) If the coil is in XZ, the normal vector points in the y direction, usually the scalar product is one and there is a flux in this configuration

The correct answer is c
