1. Consider a closed loop which already has a current ##I## running through it while the resistance of this loop is ##R=0##. I now suddenly start tuning on a homogenous magnetic field through the loop which gives raise to an emf in the loop ##\epsilon=-\frac{d\Phi}{dt}##. What will happen?

My personal reasoning is that this emf can be interpreted the same as turning on a sudden voltage in this loop. In this case since the resistance is zero the current wil go to infinity or minus infinity depending on the induced field.

This does not happen it seems according to what I remember from class and has something to do with self-induction. I don't remember the full argument though so I would appreciate it if someone could help me out to reason this through correctly.
