At a certain location, the Earth's magnetic field has a magnitude of 5.90E-5 T and points in a direction that is 71.6° below the horizontal. Calculate the magnitude of the magnetic flux through the top of a desk at this location that measures 132 cm by 83.3 cm.
Make sure the area is in sq. meters.
The flux will be in webers
Unless you show some work of your own on physics problems, I shll be reluctant to provide further assistance.
This is actually incorrect... The angle between the B field and the area is 90-71.6 degrees, or 75 degrees. B*A*COS angle.
