16 induced current in loop near wire
Top Image
A circular wire loop is placed near a long straight , current- carrying wire in which the current is either increasing or decreasing. In which of the above situations is the induced current in the loop counterclockwise? Answer is C: Magnetic field direction is perpendicularly out of paper. Current is decreasing, the magnetic field produced by the loop has the same direction. so the current is counterclockwise.
