Force on Charge Moving Near a Wire
A loose charge is rapidly moving by a current carrying wire. Your job is to find the force (magnitude and direction) on the charge

You will start by measuring the distance to the charge and the current through the wire. Use these to predict the magnetic field at the location of your charge and then find the force on the charge

Measure the current in the wire and the distance the charge is from the wire and then use that to calculate the strength of the magnetic field at the location of the charge. Use that to find the force (magnitude and direction) on the charge
Current shown is direction of electron flow
