in current-carrying conductor when placed in a magnetic field experiences a force experiment why does not the magnet move but the rod moves ????????????????

Expert Answer:

When a current carrying conductor is placed in a magnetic field, a lorentz force acts on it due to which it is forced to move. This force acts on the current carrying rod and not on the magnet, hence the magnet does not move. The direction of this force is given by Fleming's left hand rule.
