1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
My book says that the electric field produced by changing magnetic flux is nonconservative in nature but it doesn't give any explanation.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

1. If field F is conservative, what is the curl of F?

2. So if E is present due to time varying B field, i.e. dB/dt is not zero, what is the curl of E? Look up the differential form of Faraday's Law (i.e. one of Maxwell equation).

Please note that your question gave no clear indication of your level of knowledge or what you know. So I have to assume that you know (i) vector calculus and (ii) Maxwell equation.

Otherwise, you should have been very clear on what book you are referring to and what level this is at.
