Lesson 4: Force on current carrying wire in magnetic field

# Fleming's left hand rule: Solved numerical

Let's solve problems in calculating the force directions on move charges in magnetic fields using the left-hand rule. Created by Mahesh Shenoy.

• The numerical shown at : Why is the direction of the force not taken as the opposite, i.e., north, to that of exerted on the electron which is in the south if the direction of the current is taken opposite?
• What is Fleming's Left hand specifically used for?

• Technically, I suppose it's used for determining the direction of force on a current carrying conductor in a magnetic field.
• at 2.12 the direction should be into the screen ? isn't it?
also field and force can't be in the same plane
since field is in south so force can't be in north?
kindly confirm?
