Describe an activity with labelled diagram to show that a current carrying conductor experiences a force in a magnetic field.
In the following experiment:
Whenever a current carrying conductor is placed in a magnetic field then the conductor will experience a magnetic force. This happens because the current in the conductor has its own magnetic field and there is also a magnetic field present. So both the field will interact and will result in repulsion or attraction of the conductor wire toward the fixed magnets.
The magnetic force depends on four things:
•Amount of current
•Strength of Magnetic field
•Length of the wire which remain in magnetic field
•And the angle between the current carrying conductor and magnetic field.
The direction of magnetic force acting on a current wire placed in a magnetic field is given by Flemings left hands rule.

Explain with the help of a labelled diagram the distribution of magnetic field due to a current through a circular loop. Why is it that if a current carrying coil has n turns the field produced at any point is n times as large as that produced by a single turn?NCERT - Science Exemplar

Meena draws magnetic field lines of field close to the axis of a current carrying circular loop. As she moves away from the center of the circular loop she observes that the lines keep on diverging. How will you explain her observation?NCERT - Science Exemplar
