Avertical wire carries a current vertically upward in a region where the magnetic field vector points toward the north. what is the direction of the magnetic force on this current due to the field? a) downward b) toward the north c) toward the east d) toward the south e) toward the west two long parallel wires placed side-by-side on a horizontal table carry identical size currents in opposite directions. the wire on your right carries current toward you, and the wire on your left carries current away from you. from your point of view, the magnetic field at the point exactly midway between the two wires a) is zero. b) points upward. c) points downward. d) points away from you. e) points toward you.
a. C or E.. Cyclic
A. Using the right hand rule... I the thumb is the current direction, and the other fingers coil to rep the magnetic field direction.
B. Two parallel wires carrying the same current but in opposing direction repels..
We can solve the problem by using the right-hand rule. We can apply the rule as follows:
- Index finger: direction of the current
- middle finger: direction of the magnetic field
- thumb: direction of the force exerted on the wire
By applying the rule to this situation, we have:
- index finger: upward (current)
- middle finger: north (magnetic field)
- thumb: west (force)
So, the direction of the force exerted on the wire is to the west.
the arctic is a region of the planet, north of the arctic circle, and includes the arctic ocean, greenland, baffin island, other smaller northern islands, and the far northern parts of europe, russia (siberia), alaska and canada.
