Electromagnetic Induction

Q- A square conducting loop with sides length a = 0.5 m is placed in a magnetic field. The magnetic field varies in time according to the graph. If the area vector of the coil is in the same direction as magnetic field, what is the magnitude of the induced EMF in the coil at t = 25 s, 35 s and 60 s?…
