    A coil is free to move. Does it move UP or DOWN if the magnetic field is pointing onto the paper and the electron flow is anticlockwise?

    Can someone explain this please? and how it relates to lenz's law?

    Yeah... does the coil move upwards..?
    Lenz's law says that the induced current acts to oppose the direction that creates it in the first place (or something like that..), so the current flows clockwise now instead?

    well i dont understand your question, where is the coil? anyway,
    just remember it this way, the induced current obtains the SAME polarity as the magnet's approaching pole
    so if a north pole approaches a coil, the coil obtains a northpole on the recieving end so that they repel, work must be done...
