How a current carrying conductor experience force when placed in a magnetic field?

Expert Answer:

Lorentz found that a charge moving in a magnetic field ( not parallel to the field direction) experiences a force which is called the Lorentz force. Since current is due to the flow of charge , therefore a conductor carrying current placed in magnetic, will also experience a force. The direction of this force can be known by Fleming's left hand rule.
