Why the answer "a" ?

The R and r on the pic is respected to what?

Homework Equations




The Attempt at a Solution


Right hand rule : finger tip = current
Thumbs = force
Palm = B

Or
Finger tip = velocity
Thumbs = current
Palm = B

The key word here in the statement of the problem is "increasing" and they should say "increasing with time". The question involves the Faraday EMF that occurs. The changing magnetic flux creates an EMF. They basically are asking the direction of the induced ## E ## of the EMF.

That is correct. The EMF is the integral of an induced electric field along the path. The electric field ## \vec{E}=\vec{E}_{induced} ## is what the positive charge responds to, and experiences a force ## \vec{F}=q(\vec{E}+\vec{v} \times \vec{B}) ##. ## \\ ## (And of course, when they say "placed at point b", etc. that means ## \vec{v}=0 ## so that ## \vec{v} \times \vec{B}=0 ## ).
