Torque of a current carrying wire in magnetic field

  1. Mar 2, 2009 #1
    For Torque of current carrying wire in magnetic field why does the magnetic field of the current carrying wire itself not contribute to torque?

    will the current carrying wire experience a force from the magnetic field it produces?... no right?
