    The marks scheme seems pretty clear.

    the magnetic field is pointing from left to right
    the change in the magnetic field is that it is becoming weaker
    the induced current tries to oppose the change (according to lenz law)
    therefore the induced current must be in the direction which would produce a magnetic field pointing from left to right

    But then how do you work out that the current is anticlockwise- you can't use flemings right hand rule because you don't know the direction the coil is being rotated

    in section 5.B you should be looking at fig 5.3

    the rotating coil was shown in fig 5.1 which was for section 5.A

    I know that fig 5.1 is not linked to this part but I still don't know how when the field is collapsing you can work out the direction of the induced current just by one piece of information- (the north and south poles of the magnet)

    You have the direction of the magnetic field..

    -\frac{\Delta \phi}{\Delta t}=EMF

    Where \phi=\displaystyle \int B . dA

    Thank you so much for putting so much effort into explaining that to me. I really understand it now- I never even thought of using the Right hand grip rule.
