# Doubt in Lenz's Rule

I have certain doubts with Lenz's Law. Now, consider a horizontal loop. If a magnet with N facing the entrance of the loop is moving towards the loop. By Lenz's, Flux has increased. Who has increased it. The magnet. We oppose the downward B by inducing the UPWARD B. Thus, I is clockwise (RHR). Now, consider a generator initially horizontal (inline) with a West-East B. It rotates clock-wise. What is the direction of E? Who created the change? The movement clockwise. So we oppose the FORCE now. And by RHR, the I is also clockwise. Now my question is does Lenz's Rule tell us about opposing the FORCE of THE MAGNETIC FIELD? What if both occur at the same time? Consider the magnet is still and we move the loop. Do we oppose the loop movement by a FORCE or MAGNETIC FIELD?
