Magnetic field

  1. Mar 25, 2004 #1
    A vertical wire carries an upward 3 amp current. you are 1.2 m from the wire in a direction 20 deg north of east. You experience a magnetic field ( due to the wire) that is directed in what direction? Yes, you do use the right hand rule, but what direction does the right hand rule tell you?
