A long straight current-carrying wire passes normally through the center of the circular loop if the current through the wire increases. Will there be an induced emf in the loop? Justify?
Step 1: Given data and figure
Given information -
The magnetic field on the loop is given by the right-hand thumb rule in which the thumb represents the direction of the current and the curl of the fingers represents the direction of the magnetic field.
The diagrammatical representation of their given case is,
Step 2: Formula Used
Magnetic flux is given by, , where is the magnetic field, is the area, and is the angle between area vector and magnetic field
Step 3: Solution
From the figure, we can understand the angle between the area vector and the magnetic field so, it is considered 90 degrees.
As induced e.m.f directly proportional to the rate of change of magnetic flux
So, induced EMF will be .
No, there will not be an induced emf occurring in the loop as magnetic flux does not change linked with the circular loop. Because magnetic field lines are parallel to the plane of the loop.
