This point is part of the HSC Physics syllabus Module 6: Electromagnetism under the Motor Effect.
Here we will investigate qualitatively and quantitatively the interaction between a current-carrying conductor and a uniform magnetic field. In particular, we will cover:
- Conditions under which the maximum force is produced
- Relationship between the directions of the force, magnetic field strength and current
- Conditions under which no force is produced on the conductor
- q is charge
- v is velocity
- b is the magnetic field
- theta is the angle between the conductor and the field
