Question: A uniform magnetic field of induction B is confined to a cylindrical region of radius R. The magnetic field is increasing at a constant rate of (tesla/sec). An electron of charge q placed at the point P on the periphery of the field experiences an acceleration : Options: A. towards left B. towards right C. towards left D. zero answer is (A)....but shouldn't it be 0 because the particle is at rest?

dear student,
here an induced electric field which is non conservative is there due to time varying magnetic field
hope u got it
