Step 1

Given:

Charge on particle (q) = 2×10-6 C

Velocity of particle (v) = 5×105 m/s

Current in wire (i) = 10 A

Charge moving at 1cm (say r) from wire.

Step 2

Formula used:

Magnitude of magnetic field generated by current carrying wire is given by, help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseД.I В 2πη where B magnetic field intensity pemeability of free space I current in wire r nearby radius where magnetic field is to be calculated force on partic le is given by, F =q(vxB) fullscreen
Step 3

Let, charged particle is moving in the direction of flow of current.
