1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations Not really? I just used the right hand rule and Lenz's law 3. The attempt at a solution By the right hand rule, outside of loop 1, the magnetic field is out of the page. However, increasing resistance means that field is weakening. We know by Lenz's law that loop 2 will try to replace that field, so outside of loop two should be an out of the page magnetic field. This means the current direction is Clockwise, giving choice B However, the answer is choice A. Why?
