In Figure P19.2, assume in each case the velocity vector shown is replaced with a wire carrying a current in the direction of the velocity vector. For each case, find the direction of the magnetic force acting on the wire.

a)

To determine
The direction of the magnetic force on acting on a wire in the magnetic field.

Explanation

Given info: The direction of the magnetic field is into the plane of the paper. The direction of the current is on the plane of the paper and directed upward.

Explanation:

Right hand rule: Consider a current carrying wire. When the fingers of the right hand point in the direction of current and while the hand is closed...

b)

To determine
The direction of the magnetic force on acting on a wire in the magnetic field.

c)

To determine
The direction of the magnetic force on acting on a wire in the magnetic field.

d)

To determine
The direction of the magnetic force on acting on a wire in the magnetic field.

e)

To determine
The direction of the magnetic force on acting on a wire in the magnetic field.

f)

To determine
The direction of the magnetic force on acting on a wire in the magnetic field.
