    (Refer to attached picture file)
    A uniform B field of magnitude 0.0769 T is directed as shown in the diagram. A straight wire segment 15.0 cm long lies in the plane of the paper and carries a current of 28.7 A from the upper right to the lower left.
    a) On the diagram sketch the direction of the force on the wire.
    b) Find the magnitude of the force.
