I just need help on how to solve these problems. I am so confused with the directions that i just don't get it... 1) A long straight wire is aligned north-south and carries current in the northerly direction. What is the direction of the magnetic field created directly abvove the wire? Answer: East 2) What is the direction of the magnetic field created immediately to the left of the wire? a. Downward b. south c. east d. west e. upward f. north 3) If a proton is traveling north directly above the wire, what is the direction of the magnetic force on the proton due to the wire? a. upward b. south c. downward d. north e. west f. east I just need an explanation on why, and how to do this? I know it's the right hand rule, but i dont' get the questions that are asking the placement, for example number 2 says to the left of the wire? what does that mean? and like number 1 says above the wire? what does that mean? how do i go about this? any help is greatly appreciated. thanks!
