1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A wire of negligible resistance is bent into a rectangle as shown in the figure, and a battery and resistor are connected as shown. The right hand side of the circuit extends into a region containing a uniform magnetic field of 38 mT pointing into the page. Find the magnitude and direction of the net force on the circuit. 3. The attempt at a solution I already got the magnitude to be 15.2 mN. I know that the horizontal portions of the wire will cancel out, and that the magnetic field points into the page. But I don't know how to figure out the rest... The right hand rule says to point the fingers toward the direction of the magnetic field, and the thumb in the direction of the velocity (in this case the direction of the current?) and that the palm will indicate the direction of the force. But when I try that, the direction of force is to the left, and the answer says it should be to the right. Can someone explain this to me?
