# Physics Tutorial 16.4 - Magnetic Force on a Wire Moving Inside a Magnetic Field. Lorentz Force

There are 3 lessons in this physics tutorial covering Magnetic Force on a Wire Moving Inside a Magnetic Field. Lorentz Force. The tutorial starts with an introduction to Magnetic Force on a Wire Moving Inside a Magnetic Field. Lorentz Force and is then followed with a list of the separate lessons, the tutorial is designed to be read in order but you can skip to a specific lesson or return to recover a specific physics lesson as required to build your physics knowledge of Magnetic Force on a Wire Moving Inside a Magnetic Field. Lorentz Force. you can access all the lessons from this tutorial below.

In this Physics tutorial, you will learn:

• How to find the magnetic force acting a moving charge inside a magnetic field?
• The same for the direction of this magnetic force
• How does a charged particle move when it is inside a magnetic field?
• How to find the period and radius of trajectory of a charged object inside a magnetic field?
• What is Lorentz Force? How to calculate it?

## Introduction

Is it necessary for charges to flow through conducting wires to produce a magnetic force? Why do we use the conducting wire in electric circuits?

What do we obtain if a beam of charges is moving in the same direction? Do they produce any magnetic field?

What happens if a current carrying wire is inserted inside a magnetic field? Does the wire move? Why?

In this tutorial, we will explain the effect a magnetic force causes on a current carrying wire. For this, we will refer time by time to the information provided in the previous two tutorials, as things are closely related to each other.
