# A conductor of length 2m carries a current of 0.8A while kept in a magnetic fiel...

### Question

A conductor of length 2m carries a current of 0.8A while kept in a magnetic field of magnetic flux density 0.5T. The maximum force acting on it is

A) 0.2N

B) 0.8N

C) 3.2N

D) 8.0N

### Explanation:

The force on the conductor is maximum when the conductor lies perpendicular to the field during which the maximum force is given as;
F = ILB = 0.8 x 2 x 0.5 = 0.8N

## Dicussion (1)

• The force on the conductor is maximum when the conductor lies perpendicular to the field during which the maximum force is given as;
F = ILB = 0.8 x 2 x 0.5 = 0.8N
