# Which of the following law's gives the direction of induced emf? (A) Lenz's law (B) FLeming's left-hand rule (C) Ohm's law (D) Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction

Answer: (A) Lenz’s law.

Lenz’s law is used for determining the direction of induced current.

Lenz’s law of electromagnetic induction states that the direction of induced current in a given magnetic field is such that it opposes the induced change by changing the magnetic field.

Following is the formula of Lenz’s law:

 $$\begin{array}{l}\epsilon =-N\frac{\partial\phi _{B} }{\partial t}\end{array}$$

Where,

• ε is the induced emf
• ∂ΦB is the change in magnetic flux
• N is the number of turns in the coil

Lenz’s law finds application in electromagnetic braking and in electric generators
