Why doesn't a solenoid experiances force as it has both magnetic field and electricity?

Expert Answer:

The magnetic field produced by a solenoid depends on the current running through it (increases with increases current), The number of turns of wire (increased turns -> increased B field strength). The substance at the core of the field also has an effect, though it depends on the core's nature.

 The force on a current carrying wire in a magnetic field can be found by  using your RIGHT HAND...the palm is force, thumb is current and fingers (at right angles to thumb) are field direction... got it
