Unformatted text preview: 14, Slide 5 Physics Currents + Charges A long straight wire is carrying current from left to right. Two identical charges are moving with equal speed. Compare the magnitude of the force on charge a moving directly to the right, to the magnitude of the force on charge b moving up and to the right at the instant shown (i.e. same distance from the wire).
