A wire lies perpendicularly across a horizontal uniform magnetic field of flux density 20 × 10−3 T
so that 0.30 m of the wire is effectively subjected to the field. If the force exerted on this length of
wire due to a current in it is 30 × 10−3 N downward, what is the current in the wire?
A
0.45 A from P to Q
B
0.45 A from Q to P
C
5.0 A from P to Q
D
5.0 A from Q to P
