Description

A current-carrying conductor placed in a magnetic field experiences a force. If the direction of the field and that of the current are mutually perpendicular to each other, then the force acting on the conductor will be perpendicular to both, and that can be determined using Fleming’s left-hand rule. When current is established in the conductor, it gets displaced, which verifies the existence of a force on the conductor.

A current-carrying rod, AB, experiences a force perpendicular to its length and the magnetic field.

Hold the thumb and the first two fingers of your left hand mutually at right angles to each other. Then, if the Forefinger points in the direction of the field and the second finger in the direction of the Current, the thumb will point in the direction of Force.
