$\overline{){\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{N}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{T}}{\mathbf{\xb7}}{\mathbf{A}}{\mathbf{\xb7}}{\mathbf{m}}}$

Current through the conductor:

$\begin{array}{rcl}\mathbf{I}& \mathbf{=}& \frac{\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{R}}\\ & \mathbf{=}& \frac{\mathbf{15}\mathbf{}\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{3}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{0}\mathbf{}\mathbf{\Omega}}\end{array}$

I = **5.0 A**

B = 50 mT

θ (perpendicular) = 90°

The right edge of the circuit in the figure extends into a 50 mT uniform magnetic field.

What are the magnitude and direction of the net force on the circuit?

a) left

b) right

c) up

d) down
