switch has been open for a long time. Then, at t = 0, the switch is
closed. What is the time constant for the current through the

field, moving into a region with a constant field pointing into the page (shaded rectangle below),
and continuing into a region of no magnetic field. Which plot below best represents the induced
current in the loop (Iloop) as it travels from the left through these three regions? Note: a positive Iloop
corresponds to a counter-clockwise current. Current in...
