In each of parts (a), (b), and (c) of the figure below, find the direction of the current in the wire that would produce a magnetic field directed as shown. part (a) right to left part (b) out of the page part (c) lower left to upper right Ughhhhh So, the right hand rule, predictably doesn't work for this... Part A for instance, the top half of the diagram....since the magnetic field is coming OUT of the page towards you (or the magnetic field/flux out of the page is INCREASING, a current will generate a magnetic field in such a way that it goes INTO the page...this cancels any changes in the magnetic flux - Lenz's law. So I do the right hand rule with my right hand and find out that for the TOP half of the diagram, the current is CLOCKWISE (goes from LEFT to RIGHT) http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/%E2%80%8Chbase/magnetic/imgmag/magcur.gif [Broken] THEN I tried doing the bottom half, which was the opposite... The current was COUNTERCLOCKWISE (goes from RIGHT to LEFT) -___- So how is the answer, overall, Right to left??? In situations like Diagram A and Diagram C do I ONLY look at the half that has the dots (and not the X's)??
