In rural areas where electric power lines carry current to big cities, it is possible to generate small amounts of electricity from the lines by means of
induction single coil. The overhead power lines carry relatively large currents that periodically reverse in direction 60 times per second. How would you ORIENT the plane of the coil to produced maximum induced current if the power lines ran in a north-to-south direction?
a. Parallel to the ground
b. Perpendicular to the ground in the North to South direction
c. Perpendicular to the ground in the East to West direction
d. That the orientation of the coil would not affect the size of the current induced.
