Students will be able to
- recognize that if a current-carrying wire is placed in a magnetic field, there will be a force on it and it may move,
- recognize that the wire must be placed perpendicular to the magnetic field for the magnitude of the force to be greatest,
- recognize that if the wire is placed parallel to the field, there will be no force on it,
- work out the direction of the force using Fleming’s left-hand rule,
- use in all permutations.
