A bar magnetic is moved along the axis of a circular wire loop. In the figure below, (A) and (C) show the bar magnet moving toward the wire loop, while (B) and (D) show the bar magnet moving away from the wire loop.
Trying to determine in which cases the direction of magnetic force on the bar magnent is up and in which cases it is down.
Not trying to determine any actual values, just direction.
The Attempt at a Solution
I've already determined that in cases B and C the induced current in the wire is clockwise and in cases A and D the induced current in the wire is counterclockwise. However I'm unsure as to how to use this information in the correct way to determine the direction of magnetic force acting on the bar magnet. It almost certainly has to do with the right-hand rule, given that I know both the direction of the induced current and magnetic field in the loop. However, because it is a loop of wire in cases A and D the magnetic field is flowing "up" inside and loop and "down" outside the loop, and vice versa for cases B and C. As such, I'm unsure what the direction of the magnetic field should be when trying to utilize the right-hand rule.
