## What is the direction of induced current in the moving Rod?

The induced current produces magnetic fields which tend to oppose the change in magnetic flux that induces such currents. induced current flows in **the same direction as the way your fingers curl if 0 ε > , and the opposite direction if 0 ε , as shown in Figure 10.1. 6.**

## What is the direction of the induced current in the circular loop?

The direction of the induced current in the circular loop is **counterclockwise**. In c, the current is constant implying that there is no change in flux. Therefore, the induced current in the circular loop is zero.

## Why is the induced current clockwise?

a. Clockwise. **Since the ‘dot’ field is increasing** hence the induced magnetic field is’cross’,i.e. into the page and by the right-hand rule the induced current is clockwise.

## How do you know the direction of current in a wire?

Correct answer:

Using the right hand rule for the conventional current in the wire, **the right thumb is pointed along the wire pointing to the left**. At point the fingers curl around and point up, out of the screen. This can be verified by putting the thumb in the direction of current anywhere in the circuit.

## What is the direction of induced current in metal ring?

Induced current opposes the cause of increasing of magnetic flux. So, induced current will be **clockwise in ring 1** and anticlockwise in ring 2.
