State Fleming’s left-hand rule.



Fleming’s left-hand rule states that if we hold the forefinger and the middle finger and the thumb of our left hand at right angles to one another such that

  • Forefinger points in the direction of magnetic field
  • Middle finger in the direction of the current

Then the direction which the thumb points gives the direction of the force/motion of the conductor.
