The magnetic field produced in a straight wire on passing the current through it is ______
A. in the direction of current
B. in the direction opposite to the current.
C. circular around the wire
D. in the direction parallel to the wire.
The direction of the induced magnetic field from a current carrying conductor is given by the Right-hand thumb rule. According to Right-hand thumb rule when we arrange our right hand's thumb in the direction of the current and as we wrap our finger around the current carrying conductor, the wrapped finger will show the direction of the magnetic field.
So, that will result into a Circular ring around the wire.
