Concept

Problem: 1. Why are the peaks opposite in direction?a. The peaks are opposite in direction because the change in magnetic field at one end of the coil is opposite to the change in magnetic field at the other end. Faraday’s law predicts that the direction of the induced voltage is dependent on the nature of the change in magnetic field.b. The peaks are opposite in direction because the change in magnetic field at one end of the coil has the same direction to the change in magnetic field at the other end. Faraday’s law predicts that the direction of the induced voltage is dependent on the nature of the change in magnetic field.c. The peaks are in the same direction because the change in magnetic field at one end of the coil has the same direction to the change in magnetic field at the other end. Faraday’s law predicts that the direction of the induced voltage is dependent on the nature of the change in magnetic field.2. Is the incoming flux equal to the outgoing flux?a. The value of the incoming flux is approximately equal to the value of the outgoing flux, and equal in signb. The value of the incoming flux is much smaller than the value of the outgoing flux, and opposite in sign.c. The value of the incoming flux is much bigger than the value of the outgoing flux.d. The value of the incoming flux is approximately equal to the value of the outgoing flux, but opposite in sign.3. Why is the outgoing peak higher than the incoming peak?a. The second peak (outgoing peak) is higher than the incoming peak because the magnet is moving faster during the second “half” of the fall, and induces a smaller voltage.b. The second peak (outgoing peak) is higher than the incoming peak because the magnet is moving slower during the second “half” of the fall, and induces a smaller voltage.c. The second peak (outgoing peak) is higher than the incoming peak because the magnet is moving faster during the second “half” of the fall, and induces a higher voltage.d. The second peak (outgoing peak) is higher than the incoming peak because the magnet is moving slower during the second “half” of the fall, and induces a higher voltage

1.

According to Faraday's law, the direction of the induced voltage depends on the nature of the change in the magnetic field. 

Therefore, the peaks are opposite in direction because the change in the magnetic field at one end of the coil is opposite to the change in the magnetic field at the other end of the coil.

1. Why are the peaks opposite in direction?
a. The peaks are opposite in direction because the change in magnetic field at one end of the coil is opposite to the change in magnetic field at the other end. Faraday’s law predicts that the direction of the induced voltage is dependent on the nature of the change in magnetic field.
b. The peaks are opposite in direction because the change in magnetic field at one end of the coil has the same direction to the change in magnetic field at the other end. Faraday’s law predicts that the direction of the induced voltage is dependent on the nature of the change in magnetic field.
c. The peaks are in the same direction because the change in magnetic field at one end of the coil has the same direction to the change in magnetic field at the other end. Faraday’s law predicts that the direction of the induced voltage is dependent on the nature of the change in magnetic field.

2. Is the incoming flux equal to the outgoing flux?
a. The value of the incoming flux is approximately equal to the value of the outgoing flux, and equal in sign
b. The value of the incoming flux is much smaller than the value of the outgoing flux, and opposite in sign.
c. The value of the incoming flux is much bigger than the value of the outgoing flux.
d. The value of the incoming flux is approximately equal to the value of the outgoing flux, but opposite in sign.

3. Why is the outgoing peak higher than the incoming peak?
a. The second peak (outgoing peak) is higher than the incoming peak because the magnet is moving faster during the second “half” of the fall, and induces a smaller voltage.
b. The second peak (outgoing peak) is higher than the incoming peak because the magnet is moving slower during the second “half” of the fall, and induces a smaller voltage.
c. The second peak (outgoing peak) is higher than the incoming peak because the magnet is moving faster during the second “half” of the fall, and induces a higher voltage.
d. The second peak (outgoing peak) is higher than the incoming peak because the magnet is moving slower during the second “half” of the fall, and induces a higher voltage
