## What is the direction of the induced current in this figure?

The induced current will be counterclockwise (ccw). As the bar moves upward through the constant magnetic field region, the area of the loop decreases, so the flux through the loop decreases.

## What is the direction of induced current in the coil?

Since current is increasing, the magnetic field also increases which results in induction of current in the coil. Applying Lenz law, the direction of induced current through the coil is anti-clockwise

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

The direction of the induced current in the circular loop is counterclockwise.

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

By the right-hand rule, on the surface of the loop the magnetic field will have a direction towards you (going out of the paper). As it is increasing, by Lenz’s law a current opposed to this change has to appear: the current in the loop is clockwise
