    Im not sure if I've done this right because it seems too little for 6 marks. I have arrows coming from the north to the south end for the magnet's magnetic field. I have arrows going counter clockwise around the conductor. The force should be flowing to the right because that is where the arrows are in opposite direction, hence "attract" and pull towards the right? Am I missing anything?

    and likewise, where they are in the same direction, on the left, they push apart.
    Sounds fine to me.
