1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data There an electron and its moving parallel to and above a horizontal conducting wire. When A current is allowed to pass through the wire the electron is seen to move towards the wire. The direction of current flow is... 2. Relevant equations None/hand thumb rule 3. The attempt at a solution We weren't really taught other ways to approach the problem other than using the right hand rule where we use the 1st,2nd and 3rd fingers to view the direction of the current. Please note that this is an enrichment problem and so we weren't really taught much background to this problem. I'm not very good with the concept and often find my hands hurting after trying to do it lol... I'm starting to think that the scenario is impossible since we need to know which direction the current is actually flowing in (parallel or anti parallel) to do this problem. Please help!
