So I have a loop, in a magnetic field directed into the plane that the loop is lying in as shown in the figure. Let's assume that the loop is being moved towards right with uniform velocity.
Question: In which direction would this movement produce current in the loop?
I know about the Lenz's law, but I don't understand how I can apply it to this. Like what would be the way in which current induced in the loop would oppose the magnetic field it is present in.
I am familiar with the thumb rule, wrap right hand fingers along a wire with the thumb pointing in direction of current and the curl of fingers give the direction of magnetic field it produces.
I do not think that this rule can be used here.
If you have an assumption that would clarify this in a better manner then please do use that.
