In a ring of radius R, there is current I flowing in the counterclockwise direction as viewed from above. A small ring of radius r is on a common axis and is a hight z above the current carrying ring, where z>>R. The small ring moves up with velocity v. Calculate the emf in the upper ring and the direction of the induced current. It can be assumed that the ring is sufficiently small so that the magnetic field across it's area is constant.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

So E= - dΦ/dt

Φ = B*A ( since the magnetic field across it's area is constant ).

A = π*r*r

B= (μIR^2) / [ 2 ( R*R + z*z )^3/2 ] but since z>>R we can use the approximation

B= (μIR^2) / (2z^3)

Now i know I need to do the -dΦ/dt but I am getting confused ( how to do it? ).

Also the direction of the induced current will be clockwise. Please help
