Answer

Choice C.

Work Step by Step

The generator equation, 21-5, shows that voltage output is proportional to the rate of change of the flux through the coil. Increasing the maximum flux gives a larger voltage output. Tilting the magnetic field to be more parallel to the generator’s rotation axis decreases the maximum flux in the coil, and would not increase the voltage output.
