# Induced Current

Attachment 70561

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data[/b]

In the figure, two parallel wires carry a current I in opposite directions. A rectangular loop is midway between the wires. The current I is decreasing. The induced current through the resistor R is:

A: Zero

B: from b to a

C: from a to b

**2. Relevant equations**

**3. The attempt at a solution**

i know that in order to find out which way the current is flowing i need to use the right hand rule, but i also need to know if the magnetic field is flowing out or going into the page? i’m not quite sure how i would approach determining that.
