# Polarity of the induced voltage on inductor for an applied magnetic flux according to the Lenz's Law

I'm trying to visualize the Lenz's Law on a practical inductor.

The Lenz's Law says that

$$\mathcal{E} = -\dfrac{\partial \Phi}{\partial t} .$$

Now, assume that there is a magnetic flux inside the coil is in the given direction in the image below, and magnitude of this flux is increasing in time (i.e.; $\frac{\partial \Phi}{\partial t}>0$).

My two questions are:

1. What will be the polarity of induced voltage on the resistor? Please give an answer like "'A' will be more positive than 'B'.".

2. What will be the direction of current in the system. Please give an answer like "It will be in the 'R' direction.".
