Question

In the arrangement shown in given figure current from A to B is increasing in magnitude. Induced current in the loop will


A
have clockwise direction
loader
B
have anticlockwise direction
loader
C
be zero
loader
D
oscillate between clockwise and anticlockwise
loader

Solution

The correct option is A have clockwise direction
As the current is increasing, the magnetic field due to straight wire is also increasing. The flux through the loop is outwards and increasing. We have,
ϵ=dϕdt
As ddt is +ve as ϕ is increasing, ϕ is +ve as it is outwards ϵ is negative
Since ϵ is -ve the current must flow clockwise.

OR

According to Lenz’s law generated current flows always in such a direction as to oppose the change which is giving rise to it.
As the current is increasing, the magnetic field due to straight wire is also increasing. The flux through the loop is outwards and increasing. Flux due to generated current should be inwards, So direction of current flow should be clockwise.
