The magnitude of the current depends on the rate at which the magnet is moving in and out of the solenoid.

Have you considered flipping a coin?

Now you know you are expected to make some effort yourself. In this case, I assume you are talking about a generator consisting of a magnet moving inside a coil- You should have said that. What does your text book say about generators? What formulas do you know for current?

since voltage induced is proportional to the rate of change of B-field,i think magnitude is also dependent on it?

I will help you, but I am not going to give you the answer. However, if you do put some effort in, you will have the answer within minutes. Now, what is Faraday's law?

Any change in the magnetic environment of a coil of wire will cause a voltage (emf) to be "induced" in the coil.

Correct, this can be represented mathematically;

[tex]V=\frac{\Delta\Phi}{\Delta t}=\frac{\Delta (BA)}{\Delta t}[/tex]

Next, what is ohm's law?

Ohm's law states that, in an electrical circuit, the current passing through a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference applied across them provided all physical conditions are kept constant.

Ohm's law states that, in an electrical circuit, the current passing through a conductor is directly proportional to the potential difference applied across them provided all physical conditions are kept constant.
And mathematically;

[tex]I = \frac{V}{R}[/tex]

So, can you now combine the two equations?

As an aside, I do hope that you are taking the time to understand these laws and are simply not copying and pasting them directly from the internet.

Substitute Faraday's law for the V in ohm's law.

I will do the substitution for you, however, you must draw your own conclusions. So now we can say that;

[tex]I = \frac{\frac{\Delta (BA)}{\Delta t}}{R} = \frac{\Delta (BA)}{R\cdot\Delta t}[/tex]

Now, if you change that rate at which you move the magnet through the coil, do any terms change in the above equation?

The magnitude of the current depends on the rate at which the magnet is moving in and out of the solenoid.
If the current does change when you change the rate at which the magnet moves then the above statement is ____

Hootenanny does the magnitude of the current depend on the strength of the magnet.

P.S because weave formed such a close friendship over these past hours do you think you might be able to answer my other question.... pleaseeeeee

Hootenanny does the magnitude of the current depend on the strength of the magnet.
What do you think? Look at the equation we derived above.
