Predict the direction of induced current in the situations described by the following Figs. 6.18(a) to (f).

Answer :

The direction of induced current will be given by Lenz’s law.

According to the Lenz’s law: The direction of induced current by change in magnetic field (Faraday’s induction) will be such that it opposes the change that caused it.
As seen from the given figures, the direction of the induced current is shown when the north pole of the magnet is moved towards the closed loop or away from the closed loop.
