If a current is suddenly turned on, which direction will the force act? force a) + z (out of page) b) - z (into page) b) c) + x c) d) - x d) e) - y e) Using the right-hand rule to determine the magnetic field produced by the wire, we find that at the position of the charge + q (to the left of the wire) the B field points out of the page. Applying the right-hand out rule again for the magnetic force on the charge, we find that +q experiences a force in the +x direction. +x y +q x z I ConcepTest 5....
