The magnet will induce a current in the loop. The field produced by the current tends to repel the magnet as it approaches and attract it as it leaves.

A bar magnet with magnetic dipole moment 0.54 A m 2 lies on the negative x axis. A compass is located at the origin. Magnetic north is in the negative z direction. Between the bar magnet and the compass is a coil of wire of radius 3.5 cm, connected to batteries not shown. The distance from the center of the coil to the center of the compass is 9.7 cm. The distance from the center of the bar magnet to the center of the compass is 22.5 cm. A steady current of 0.96 A runs through the coil. Conventional current runs clockwise in the coil when viewed from the location of the compass. Despite the presence of the coil and the bar magnet, the compass points north. (a) Which end of the bar magnet is closer to the compass
