If a magnet is brought near a current carrying conductor free at one end, would the wire move?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
The wire would move on bringing magnet near it, as the magnet would exert a mechanical force on the current carrying wire, and this force is enough to produce motion in the wire.
This result can also be obtained by the Newton’s third law of motion, that is, if a current carrying wire exerts a force on a magnet, then the magnet will exert an equal and opposite force on the wire.
