A straight current carrying conductor produces a magnetic field around it. Is there a similar magnetic field produced around a thin beam of moving (1)alpha particles(2)neutrons? also give reason for your answer.

Answer:
(i) Alpha particles being positively charged constitute a current in the direction of motion, therefore magnetic field will be produced around a thin beam of moving alpha particles.
(ii) The neutrons being electrically neutral constitute no current, so no magnetic field will be produced around a thin beam of moving neutrons.
