(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I have a circular magnetic field and a proton (A) a distance Ra from the center of the circle. The magnetic field is traveling into the page and is decreasing at some rate B(t). I have the radius of the circle Rb.

The question is that when the proton is released, what happens to the proton?

2. Relevant equations

F = qv x b

Right Hand Rule

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm pretty sure that with a changing magnetic field, it will create an induced current/magnetic field that will exert a force on it. Its not a mathematical problem necessarily i just need to know what happens to the proton. in the midst of a changing magnetic field.
