Problem: 1. Determine the direction of the magnetic field of the current-carrying wire.upward, downward, into the page, or out of the page?2. As the current in the wire increases, the magnetic field around the wire increases in magnitude without changing its direction. Does this affect the flux through the loop, and if so, how?a. As the magnetic field of the wire increases, the flux through the loop increases as well.b. As the magnetic field of the wire increases, the flux through the loop decreases.c. As the magnetic field of the wire increases, the flux through the loop remains steady.
