Question

Figure shows a point P near a long conductor XY carrying a current 1. MN is a short current carrying conductor, kept at the point P, parallel to the conductor XY.

(i) What is the direction of magnetic flux density 'B' at the point P due to the current flowing through XY?

(ii) What is the direction of the force experienced by the conductor MN due to the current flowing through XY?

Solution

(i) Direction of magnetic flux density 'B' at point P due to current flowing in XY is vertically downward into the plane of paper.

(ii) Force experienced by the conductor MN due to the current in XY is towards the conductor XY. i.e., towards LHS. (left hand side).

(ii) Force experienced by the conductor MN due to the current in XY is towards the conductor XY. i.e., towards LHS. (left hand side).
