A simple generator has a 780-loop square coil 21.0 cm on a side. How fast must it turn in a 0.650 T field to produce a 150 V peak output?

I got 6.71 rev/s but that is wrong

  1. In angular velocity (rad/s) units, call the coil rotation rate w. The peak induced voltage is
    Vmax = N*B*A*w = 150 V
    where N is the number of turns (780),
    A = (0.21)^2 = 0.0441 m^2, and
    B = 0.650 T
    Thus
    w = 6.71 rad/s
    Your numerical answer is correct but the units are wrong.
    You have to divide 6.71 by 2 pi to get the answer rev/s, which would be 1.07. Perhaps they want rpm. That would be 64 rpm
