By changing the size of the loop, or the orientation of the loop and the field, one can change the magnetic flux through the loop, but the magnetic field will not change. Q31.2 The magnetic flux is Φ B BA = cos θ . Therefore the flux is maximum when B is perpendicular to the loop of wire and zero when there is no component of magnetic field perpendicular to the loop. The flux is zero when the loop is turned so that the field lies in the plane of its area. Q31.3 The force on positive charges in the bar is Fv B q af . If the bar is moving to the left, positive charge will move downward and
