1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The closed loop is vertical and the magnetic field is a north and south pole such that the looped end faces the magnetic poles. A multiple choice question answer stated that the closed loop will have a smaller acceleration than 10mls ^2 as it would experience an opposing force. But if I look at it closely, won't the 2 induced force cancel each other so it will accelerate at 10m/s^2? 2. Relevant equations None 3. The attempt at a solution My explanation goes like this: when it is dropped into the magnetic field, it experiences a change in magnetic flux linkage and thus there would be a current induced induced it. since there is a current flowing perpendicular to the magnetic field, by Fleming left hand rule there will be 2 forces acting on the closed loops at the two edges there are equal and opposite. Hence, this cancels out the force which allows the downwards acceleration to be still 10m/s^2. Is there something wrong with my concept here? It seems correct to me though. I hope you guys can answer me as soon as possible cos tomorrow is my physics O level paper thanks for the help!
