Homework Statement



I was looking at a question which asked when the induced current in a circuit was greatest, and this was when the rate of change of magnetic flux was greatest. However, this (seems to )contradicts V = IR. Can anyone explain?

How?
I thought that if we have constant resistance, an increase in voltage would lead to a decrease in current. At least that's how I interpret the equation.

R=V/I. Increase in voltage increases the current such that V/I is constant. I is in direct proportion with V. That's pretty intuitive, isn't it?

Yeah, it makes sense thinking about it like that. Thanks [emoji4]
