Homework Help: EMF-mag and EMF-dir

  1. Aug 11, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A magnetic field B, directed along the z-axis, varies with time T as shown in the figure. A planar conducting loop is in the magnetic field. The magnetic field is perpendicular to the plane of the loop.

    Select the appropriate description for the magnitude of the EMF induced in the loop (EMF-mag) and for its direction (EMF-dir) at the indicated times. Select a response for each statement.

    The EMF-mag at J is ?????? that at L.
    The EMF-mag at H is ????? that at G.
    The EMF-mag at J is ????? that at C.
    The EMF-mag at D is equal to zero. (true or false)
    The EMF-dir at G is opposite to that at C. (true or false)
    The EMF-mag at C is ???? that at G.
    The EMF-dir at H is opposite to that at G (true or false)

    2. Relevant equations
    Not really an equation but I remember this being directly related to the slope/derivative of the lines, but I am getting the answer wrong. I am unsure of how to find the direction


    3. The attempt at a solution
