So at school we have this teacher who said something along the lines of the following:
Assume there exists a charge in a field free environment (no electric or magnetic field) initially, say a room in which the charge is placed.
He said that if he were to switch on a source of uniform magnetic field, the charge would experience a force (to our surprise actually, since the charge isn't moving) and start moving. Every single one of us in the class said the charge wouldn't move.
Is he wrong? Or are we missing something?
