My question is about how the magnetic field effects things in space.
If there was a magnetic material that was a certain distance d away from the wire and then current goes through the wire, would the material orbit around the wire at distance d forever?
After reading the responces, I understand that it would not rotate around the lines, but it would align to them as Claudio mentions.
My initial question actually arised after watching this video. So now I am going to change my question a little.
If you put a perfect circle of iron fillings in space around a wire, and allow current to flow through the wire, would they orbit around the wire?
