    For question 5cii of the above paper, the mark scheme below says that there is current in the tube but how can there be when it is not part of a complete circuit?

    When flux lines are cut, an EMF is induced in a direction such as to oppose the change that caused it (Lenz's law). This EMF produces a current. This current is also known as an eddy current which is literally an electric current - in this case, "a localized electric current is induced".(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddy_current).

    Note: Electromagnetism is easy to explain incorrectly - could anybody double check what I said?
