I have two magnetic fields question (high school level) which require clear answers...
When a current carrying conductor, such as a copper wire, is placed in a magnetic field it will experience a force. Has the force produced anything to do with the wire itself? if not, what produces the force? (I don't understand the highlighted bit....)
When a current carrying wire in a magnetic field experiences a force it is usually seen to move. Is this consistent with Newton's Third Law? Where is the equal and opposite force? Explain the observation.
My physics teach briefly explained it but I did not understand it fully..
