1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In which direction would the electric field in the wire point if the wire were pulled to the right? 2. Relevant equations Right hand rule F=qvXB 3. The attempt at a solution My answer is downward. I am confused whether I should take the moving charges as positive or negative since this would determine the direction of the current. I know that the direction of the current is the same as the electric field. (for positive) Thanks!
