Question: 103

3. The figure below shows a small circular loop of wire in the plane of a long, straight wire that carries a steady current I upward. If the loop is moved from distance x2 to distance x1 from the straight wire, what will be the direction of the induced current in the loop and the direction of the corresponding magnetic field it produces?

A. The induced current will be clockwise, and the magnetic field it produces will point out of the plane of the page.
B. The induced current will be clockwise, and the magnetic field it produces will point into the plane of the page.
C. The induced current will be counterclockwise, and the magnetic field it produces will point out of the plane of the page.
D. The induced current will be counterclockwise, and the magnetic field it produces will point into the plane of the page.
E. None of the above
