    If you push the north pole of a magnet into a coil of conducting wire, the current should flow in the clockwise direction. This is because by moving the magnet into the coil of wire, you are increasing the magnetic field. A change in magnetic field is necessary to induce a current flow. When the magnetic field is increasing, with respect to the system, current flows in the clockwise direction. If you were to remove the north pole of the magnet from the same coil, the current would then begin to flow in the counterclockwise direction.
