Explanation:
The downward current through the resis-
tor reduces the existing flux ΦB in the loop;
Explanation: i.e., the current produces magnetic flux in the
opposite direction as the existing flux, into
the paper. Such a response counteracts the
reduction of enclosed flux within the rail and
rod loop that arises if the rod moves to the
right, as would follow from Lenz’ law.
Let : I = 0.73 A , Therefore the rod must be moving to the
right.
