# Direction of induced current in conducting ring due to motion of bar m

1. Sep 29, 2013

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations
-

3. The attempt at a solution

The relative velocity of magnet with respect to ring is 5−4=1m/s
How can I find the Direction of induced current in conducting ring due to motion of bar magnet?
I searched online and found this : http://www.phys.ufl.edu/courses/phy2049/f07/lectures/2049_ch30B.pdf

Please help. Is there any rule for this ? ( Like the right hand thumb rule for induced magnetic field ?)

When one tries to find the direction of induced current, the poles of the magnets also count. In the question the south pole goes first, and its description is given under the sub-heading 'Reverse pole' in web link you gave....
And yes, there is a law for this one and it is called the 'Lenz`s law'.
The below one is a wikipedia link for the law..
