1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations Faraday's and Lenz' law. emf = -d(ф)/dt 3. The attempt at a solution The current is increasing upwards during that time interval. Thus, by Right-Hand-Rule, the magnetic field goes into the page at the loop. Lenz' law says that the loop's induced emf will produce a magnetic field that opposes the field from the wire. Thus a magnetic field in the opposite direction, out of page, would mean, by RHR, that the induced emf is counter-clockwise. This is however not the answer. Which one of the above statements is flawed? Thank you very much.
