Doesn't the flux increase when you increase the number of turns of wire? I'm getting conflicting information from multiple places: https://physics.stackexchange.com/qu...-magnetic-flux the dude says N (number of turns of wire) affects ϕ. Also: http://i.imgur.com/hzwGz0n.png the book even plainly states that. However, nowhere in the book is N included in the ϕ=BA equation. What's going on!? I have a test on this area in 4 hours and i need to know this Attached Thumbnails

Each loop of the coil contributes just 0.24cm² to the total area but 50 turns adds up to a respectable 12cm². This seems to be what is implied by http://i.imgur.com/hzwGz0n.png The review question answer just looks like a miss-print the equation shown works out to 0.00003 not 0.003.
