EMI (Electromagnetic induction) using a current carrying wire and circular conductor

  1. Apr 7, 2009 #1
    Okay. Lets say i have a current carrying conductor as shown below. A magnetic field will be caused by the current in an anti-clockwise direction as shown below. If i drop a circular conductor parallel to the current carrying wire, there will be a change in magnetic flux linkage. So, will there be an induced current in the conductor? When you use fleming's left hand rule to see the migration of electrons to one side of the conductor, the orientation seems wierd to actually induce a current. So please help. :)
