What Happens to a Current-Carrying Wire in a Magnetic Field?

23 Jul , 2014  

Electric energy is carried by current, which is the flow of electrons, which are the negatively charged sub-particles of atoms. This transfer of electrons from one place to another powers our lights, phones, appliances and many other things we use every day. Another interesting phenomenon of flowing current is that it produces its own magnetic field. Electricity and magnetism are very closely linked in that all closed loop currents create their own magnetic fields, and magnetic fields acting upon closed loop circuits can produce current or even change current diction.
