[SOLVED] Direction of Current 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am having problems identifying in which way the induced current for a loop will be. Code (Text): A loop is placed in a magnetic field as shown in the figure. If the magnitude of the field is decreased, the induced current in the loop will be. [PLAIN]http://capa.fiu.edu/CAPA/brfigs/BRing.jpg[/CENTER][/URL] [Broken] with the following options: Code (Text): A) out of the page. B) clockwise. C) into the page. D) counter clockwise. 2. Relevant equations Right Hand Rule 3. The attempt at a solution Well I tried using the right hand rule. I have learned that the x's represent that the current is flowing into the wire, away from me. So I placing my thumb facing away from me, and my finger curl, and it seems to be going out of the page. Also, how do I know if I should turn counterclockwise or clockwise?
