Consider a metal ring kept (supported by a cardboard) on top of a fixed solenoid carrying a current I. The centre of the ring coincides with the axis of the solenoid. If the current in the solenoid is switched off, what will happen to the ring?

Answers (1)

Here, the ring will now experience a downward force. This is followed from the Lenz’s law, as the current stops flowing in the solenoid; the magnetic flux will also get decreases. A current in the ring will be induced so as to oppose that and hence it will experience a downward force.
