Textbook Problem

The following statements are related to the force of a magnetic field on a current-carrying wire. Indicate whether each statement is true (T) or false (F). (a) The magnetic force on the wire is independent of the direction of the current. (b) The force on the wire is directed perpendicular to both the wire and the magnetic field. (c) The force takes its largest value when the magnetic field is parallel to the wire.

a)

To determine
Whether the statement is true or false.

Explanation

The force on a current carrying conductor in a magnetic field is given by,

F=BIlsinθ (1)

  • F is the force
  • B is the magnetic field
  • I is the current on

b)

To determine
Whether the statement is true or false.

c)

To determine
Whether the statement is true or false.
