A magnetic field of 1.4 T [N] is 4.0m wide. A very long wire crosses the field. The current in the wire is 2.0 A [W].
What would happen if the wire is rotated slightly in the horizontal plane?
F = ILBSinx
The Attempt at a Solution
I dont understand what it means by "rotated in the horizontal plane". If it was moved left or right, L would increase because the wire isnt moving straight across the electric field. However, it says the current in the wire is moving West which confuses me.
Is it saying that the wire is lifted to create an angle with the surface it is on?
