why do two long parallel conductors carrying current exert force on each other?
Asked by jaspreet singh | 24th Feb, 2011, 12:31: AM
Due to the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction, when current passes through conductors, a magnetic field is developed around it. When two such conductors are placed parallel to each other, two seperate magnetic field will be developed in the vicinity, as a result of which the conductors exert a Lorentz force on each other.
Hope this helps.
