Concept

Problem: A long wire stretches along the x axis and carries a 3.2 A current to the right ( +x ). The wire is in a uniform magnetic field B = ( 0.21i -0.34j + 0.21k )T.Determine the x-component of the force on the wire per cm of length.Determine the y-component of the force on the wire per cm of length.Determine the z-component of the force on the wire per cm of length.

We're given: 

B = ( 0.21i -0.34j + 0.21k )T.

Magnetic force:

FB=I(l×B), where I is current, l is length and B is magnetic field.
