The magnetic force on a current-carrying wire is perpendicular to both the wire and the magnetic field with direction given by the right hand rule.
19-5 The Magnetic Force on a Current-Carrying Wire. Starting with the magnetic force on a moving charge
Magnetic force on a current-carrying wire. OBJECTIVE: To show that the magnetic force on a wire is proportional to the current in the wire and to use that force to calculate the magnetic field strength.

Introduction to magnetic force on a wire. We know that current through a wire is due to the motion of free electrons in the wire in a particular direction. When such a wire is placed in a magnetic field, each electron moving in the magnetic field experiences a force.
Magnetic field lines. Force on a wire. F = IBl. Iron filings give field pattern.
31.5. Forces on a wire. A current I flowing through a wire is equivalent to a collection of charges moving with a certain velocity vd along the wire.
So imagine that your wire is supported at either end, and the magnetic field is strictly between the two supports, so the total force on the wire is – in some sense – between the two supports.
Along 0.27 m of the length of the wire there is a magnetic field of 0.82 tesla in the +y direction, due to a large magnet nearby.
The force on a current-carrying wire segment in a magnetic field is given by
