When the coil is rotated at a uniform rate in a uniform horizontal magnetic field of intensity $\displaystyle \vec{B}$, then the induced e.m.f produced is given by:

$\displaystyle e = -\frac{d\phi}{dt}$

$\displaystyle = -\frac{d}{dt}[N\vec{B}\cdot \hat{n} A]$

Where N = number of turns in coil

and A = Area of coil

$\displaystyle = -\frac{d}{dt}[NBcos{\theta}A]$

$\displaystyle = -NAB\frac{d}{dt}[cos{\theta}]$

$\displaystyle = -NAB\left[-sin{\theta}\frac{d\theta}{dt}\right]$

$\displaystyle = NAB\omega sin{\omega t}$

Where $\displaystyle \omega = \frac{d\theta}{dt} = \frac{\theta}{t}, \text{as it is uniform}$

$\displaystyle \therefore \ e = (NAB\omega)sin(\omega t)$

$\displaystyle e = e_0 \ sin{(\omega t)}$

And there you go.
