Right Hand Rule #3

The Attempt at a Solution



For #11 I can do b) left
f) downward

But I don't understand how to do a,c,e because I don't understand how to use RHR 3 with those inward/outward info for V.


And I don't understand D because it doesn't say whether B is inward or outward.

Please help! Thanks![/B]
