A straight, vertical wire carries a current of 2.30 A downward in a region between the poles of a large superconducting electromagnet, where the magnetic field has a magnitude of B = 0.578 T and is horizontal.

Part A

What is the magnitude of the magnetic force on a 1.00 cmcm section of the wire that is in this uniform magnetic field, if the magnetic field direction is east?

Part B

What is the direction of this magnetic force?

 south north west east

Part C

What is the magnitude of the magnetic force on a 1.00 cmcm section of the wire that is in this uniform magnetic field, if the magnetic field direction is south?

Part D

What is the direction of this magnetic force?

 north east west south

Part E

What is the magnitude of the magnetic force on a 1.00 cmcm section of the wire that is in this uniform magnetic field, if the magnetic field direction is 30.0 ∘∘ south of west?

Part F

What is the direction of this magnetic force?
