How to determine the direction of induced current in a solenoid?

  1. Oct 11, 2013 #1
    I have come across this problem, who to determine the direction of induced current.
    It keeps me wondering why the answer that i got is Fleming's right hand rule?
    Aren't it should be Right hand grip rule?
    Cz the usual and conventional way of inducing electricity in a solenoid is to pass the magnet through the centre of the solenoid.

    can Fleming right hand rule works with the index (magnetic field) and middle finger (Direction of induced current) align?
