Solution

## The correct options are B Increasing the current in the conductor. C Increasing the magnetic field. We know that, force on a current carrying conductor placed in a magnetic field is F = Bil. Given, the direction of electric current is perpendicular to the magnetic field. So, amount of force experienced by a current carrying conductor placed in a magnetic field depends on (i) the current in the conductor (i) (ii) the strength of the magnetic field (B). (iii) length of the conducting wire (l).
