I have a question about induced voltage and magnetic force "acting together". What I mean is that I know that when there is a perpendicular magnetic field acting on a wire that has current going through it, it will produce a magnetic force perpendicular to both magnetic field and current/wire as according to Ampere/Lorentz law.

But at the same time I know that a changing magnetic field acting on a perpendicular wire will produce a current in it accroding to Faraday's law. So my question is that if there is a wire with some current I going through it and there is a changing magnetic field B acting on it, then what will happen? Will it generate just induced voltage and the wire will stay motionless or will it move because of the force acting upon it and there will be no induced voltage generated? Or will it be somekind of a mix of both- that the magnetic field will generate some current as well as some movement.

Maybe the answer to this is obvious and I have some opinion what should happen, but I'm not so sure about it at the moment.

Yours!
