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.
Magnitude and direction of force acting on a current carrying wire is calculated and explained.
