ε=− dϕ​/dt

Since inward flux is increasing the EMF will be induced counter clockwise.


The instantaneous flux associated with a closed circuit of 10Ω resistance is indicated by the following reaction f = 6t2 _ 5t + 1, then the value in amperes of the induced current at t = 0.25 sec will be

at t=0.25sec


When a magnet is being moved towards a coil, the induced emf does not depend upon


The magnitude of induced emf is independent of the resistance of the coil.
∴e=−dϕ/dt=−N (d/dt) [(BA)/dt]
Thus, e depends upon N, B and A.
But induced current depends upon R.

Dimensions for magnetic permeability will be [ML2T−2A−2]/[L]=[MLT−2A−2]


A closed planar wire loop of area A and arbitrary shape is placed in a uniform magnetic field of magnitude B, with its plane perpendicular to magnetic field. The resistance of the wire loop is R. The loop is now turned upside down by 180° so that its plane again becomes perpendicular to the magnetic field. The total charge that must have flowen through the wire ring in the process is


Induced emf= d(flux)/dt​=R[dq​/dt]
⇒Δq= Δ(flux)​/R=2BA/R​


A square coil ABCD is placed in x-y plane with its centre at origin. A long straight wire, passing through origin, carries a current in negative z-direction. Current in this wire increases with time.The induced current in the coil is


As magnetic field lines due to current carrying wire is along the surface and hence,


Two identical coaxial circular loops carry a current i each circulating in the same direction. If the loops approach each other


As the two identical coaxial circular loops carry a current i each circulating in the same direction, their flux add each other. When the two are brought closer, the total flux linkage increases. By Lenz's law a current will be induced in both the loops such that it opposes this change in flux. As the flux increases, the current in each loop will decrease so as to decrease the increasing flux.


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


The direction of the induced current is as shown in the figure, according to Lenz’s law which states that the indeed current flows always in such a direction as to oppose the change which is giving rise to it.


The north pole of a magnet is brought near a coil. The induced current in the coil as seen by an observer on the side of magnet will be


The direction of the current will be anticlockwise.
According to Lenz's law, the current in the coil will be induced in the direction that'll oppose the external magnetic field .
As the flux due to the external magnet is increasing ( as the N-pole is brought close ) , the coil will have to induce current in the anticlockwise direction to oppose this increase in flux and not in clockwise direction as that'll end up supporting the external flux.


A metal sheet is placed in a variable magnetic field which is increasing from zero to maximum. Induced current flows in the directions as shown in figure. The direction of magnetic field will be -


The direction of these circular magnetic lines is dependent upon the direction of current. The density of the induced magnetic field is directly proportional to the magnitude of the current. Direction of the circular magnetic field lines can be given by Maxwell's right hand grip rule or Right handed cork screw rule.


A small conducting rod of length l, moves with a uniform velocity v in a uniform magnetic field B as shown in fig-


The rod is moving towards the right in a field directed into the page.
Now, if we apply Fleming's right hand rule, then the direction of induced current will be from end X to end Y.
But, according to Lenz's law the emf induced in the rod will be such that it opposes the motion of the rod.
Hence, the actual emf induced will be from end Y to end X. So, the current will also flow from end Y to end X.
Now, using the convention of current end Y should be positive and end X should be negative.
So, correct answer is option b

Rate of change of area with remain same even if wire is replaced by semi-circular wire, 
∴ induced current will be same as earlier one as I = (e/R) & e i.e. induced emf is function of area because
e = – N (dɸ/dt) = – N (d/dt) (ABcoswt).


A conducting square loop of side I and resistance R moves in its plane with a uniform velocity v perpendicular to one of its sides. A uniform and constant magnetic field B exists along the perpendicular to the plane of the loop in fig. The current induced in the loop is


Voltage is induced due to change in the magnetic flux through a closed loop.
Magnetic Flux = ϕ=BA=const.
Induced EMF = dtdϕ​=0
Induced current =i=E/R=0


Two identical conductors P and Q are placed on two frictionless fixed conducting rails R and S in a uniform magnetic field directed into the plane. If P is moved in the direction shown in figure with a constant speed, then rod Q


As the conductor P moves away from Q, the area of the loop enclosed by the conductors and the rails increases. This in turn increases the flux through the loop.
EMF will be induced in such a way that the change in flux will be resisted. The induced current will cause Q to move towards P thereby reducing the area and thus the flux back.


Two infinitely long conducting parallel rails are connected through a capacitor C as shown in the figure. A conductor of length l is moved with constant speed v0. Which of the following graph truly depicts the variation of current through the conductor with time ?


By Faraday's Law of induction,
ε=− dϕ​/dt
=−Bl (dx/dt) ​=−Blv0​
This emf should induce the movement of charges creating a current. But due to the attached capacitor, all charges are conserved.
Thus I= dq/dt ​=0
The correct option is C.

A long metal bar of 30 cm length is aligned along a north south line and moves eastward at a speed of 10 ms-1. A uniform magnetic field of 4.0 T points vertically downwards. If the south end of the bar has a potential of 0V, the induced potential at the north end of the bar is


Induced emf =Blv=12V. It is induced in the northward direction by right hand rule (emf=)
therefore if the south end of the pole has potential of 0V, the north end will have a potential of 12V.
