Why does a current carrying conductor experiences a force when it is placed in a magnetic field? State Fleming's left hand rule.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
Because of interaction between the field due to current carrying conductor and the magnetic field in which the conductor is placed.
Fleming's left hand rule - If we stretch the thumb, the first finger and the middle finger of the left hand so that they are mutually perpendicular to each other and if the first finger points in the direction of the magnetic field, the middle finger points in the direction of current, then the thumb points in the direction of motion of the conductor.
