When is the force on a current carrying wire maximum or minimum?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
The force on a current carrying wire is maximum only when the wire is perpendicular to the direction of magnetic field. It is minimum, that is, no force acts on the conductor when it is parallel to the magnetic field.
