1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A stationary loop of wire is placed in a magnetic field directed into the page. The current in the loop of wire: and then it lists 4 multiple choice options. the answer is: the current in the loop of wire is clockwise if the magnetic field is decreasing. 2. Relevant equations non really 3. The attempt at a solution My issue is when trying to solve this i realized that if the current is clockwise then a magnetic field will be created that is going into the page. BUT lenz's law states the induced current will create a magnetic field OPPOSING the inducing magnetic field. So I would have answered the question by saying the current would be counterclockwise since this would make a magnetic field that comes out of the page (i.e. opposing the inducing magnetic field) I'm not sure why the answer is the one that is written. Any help is appreciated.
