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.
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.
