A student while studying the force experienced by a current-carrying conductor kept in a magnetic field records the following observations:
i. The force experienced by the conductor increases as the current is increased.
ii. The force experienced by the conductor decreases as the strength of the magnetic field is increased.
Which of the two observations is correct and why?
The statement (i) is correct as the magnetic field produced around the conductor is proportional to the current flowing through it. More the magnetic field, more is the force exerted by it.
The statement (ii) is incorrect as it is against the laws of magnetism.
