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.

If we define to be the number of charged particles per unit volume, at any instant there are charges within that segment of wire. Therefore from Equation 3, we can write the magnetic force on a wire of length as.
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.
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.
