What happens to the force experienced by a current carrying conductor placed in a uniform magnetic field when :

a) Current is decreased

b) Length of the conductor is increased

by (44.0k points)

F = iBl sin θ

Fmax = iBl sin$\frac{\pi}2$

Fmax = iBl

Then Current i = $\frac{F}{Bl}$

ago by (12.9k points)

The magnitude of the force experienced by a current carrying conductor placed in a uniform magnetic field is given by:-

$F = BIL sinθ$,

(a) As $F ∝I$, so, If current is decreased, then the force experienced by the current carrying conductor will also be decreased.

(b) As $F ∝L$ so if the length of the conductor is increased, then the force experienced by the current carrying conductor will also be increased.
