A uniform magnetic field is at right angles to the plane of a wire loop. The field decreases by 0.25 T in 1.0*10^−3 s and the magnitude of the average emf induced in the loop is 83 V.

What is the area of the loop?
What would be the value of the average induced emf if the field change was the same but took twice as long to decrease?
What would be the value of the average induced emf if the field decrease was twice as much and it also took twice as long to change?

Part A = south

A bar magnet is thrust toward the center of a circular metallic loop. The magnet approaches perpendicularly with its length perpendicular to the coil’s plane. As the bar recedes from your view and approaches the coil, a clockwise current is induced in the loop. What polarity is that end of the bar magnet nearest the coil?

Part A = clockwise
Part B = no current
Part C = counterclockwise

A loop of wire is initially held above a short solenoid. A constant counterclockwise (as viewed from above) current passes through the turns of the solenoid. The loop of wire is steadily lowered, eventually “encircling” the solenoid.
What is the direction of the induced current in the loop when the loop is above the solenoid, moving downward?
What is the direction of the induced current at the instant that the loop is at the midpoint of the solenoid and still moving downward?
What is the direction of the induced current when the loop is below the solenoid and moving downward?
