What happens to the direction of the magnetic field about an electric current when the direction of current is reversed?


Expert Answer

When a charge is moving, the magnetic field is produces. Current is the flow of charges, thus, when current is flowing in a wire; a magnetic field is produced.

The direction of the magnetic field depe...
