Sol 1 : (C) In uniform magnetic field, change in magnetic
VQ – V0= =2Bwa2 flux is zero. Therefore, induced current will be zero.
\correct answer is (c)
Vp – VR=0

Sol 2 : (D)
Sol 29 : (D) No current flows. As it doesn’t form a
closed circuit. Cross × magnetic field passing from the closed loop is
increasing. Therefore, from Lenz’s law induced current
Sol 30 : (C) φ= ∫ B.dA will produce dot • magnetic field. Hence, induced
current is anticlockwise.

Due to rotation there is no change in flux through the
wire, so there is no extra induced emf in the wire. From
Lenz’s Law, current in the wire is rightward so repulsive
force acts between the wire and loop.
