An induced current is a current that is produced in a conductor when there is a change in the magnetic field surrounding it. Unlike a direct current (DC), which flows continuously in one direction, an induced current is alternating in nature and changes direction periodically.
The direction of an induced current is not determined by the current itself but is instead determined by the direction of the changing magnetic field that is causing the current. According to Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction, the magnitude and direction of an induced current are proportional to the rate of change of the magnetic field. The induced current will flow in a direction such that it opposes the change in the magnetic field that produced it, as described by Lenz’s law.
Therefore, the direction of the induced current is not determined by any intrinsic property of the current itself, but rather by the external factors that are causing it to be induced.
