    Does a current carrying wire attached to a magnet generate a force?

    I apologize, I can't attach a drawing. Imagine a large amount of rectangular, current carrying loops wrapped around an axle much like a slinky wrapped around a rod with magnets fixed to the outside of the loops. The current carrying loops would all have current flowing in the same direction and...

    Does a current carrying wire attached to a magnet generate a force?

    I have a bit of a theoretical question. If one has a current carrying wire in a magnetic field such as in an electric motor rotor, does the resulting force on the wire also impart an opposing force on the stator magnets which are producing the magnetic field as Newton’s third law says? Also, if...
