Unformatted text preview: Carrying Wire) Problem: The gure shows a wire with current out oF the page suspended between the poles oF a magnet. What is the direction oF the magnetic Force on the current-carrying wire? Select One oF the ollowing: (a) Upward. (b) Downward. (c-Answer) To the right. (d) To the leFt. N S 2 Solution (a) The magnetic feld due to the magnet points out oF its north pole and into its south pole. ThereFore, the magnetic feld at the current-carrying wire points downward. (b) The current is out oF the page, and the magnetic Force on the current by the external magnetic feld can be Found to be to the right by using the right-hand-rule For the direction oF magnetic Force on a current on the Lorentz Force. Total Points for Problem: 3 Points 3...
