. An electron moves along the line AB, which lies in the same plane as a circular loop of conducting wires as shown in the diagram

What will be the direction of current induced if any, in the loop 


A. No current will be induced

B. The current will be clockwise

C. The current will be anticlockwise


Best Answer

Ans: D

Sol: If electron is moving from left to right, the flux linked with the loop (which is into the page) will first increase and then decrease as the electron passes by. So the induced current in the loop will be first anticlockwise and will change direction as the electron passes by.
