1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A circular loop of wire is placed next to a long straight wire. The current I in the long straight wire is increasing. What direction is the current that's induced in the circular loop? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I'm aware that the answer is clockwise; however, I'm trying to conceptualize exactly how. I'm quite familiar with induction using Faraday's Law when it comes to magnetic fields. I know that the current will create a magnetic field; however, my brain must not be working today as I'm not able to combine these concepts at the moment. Can someone please break this relatively simply question down for me in a way that helps me to grasp the concept? Thanks!
