User: Which of the following statements is true about a current-carrying wire in a magnetic field? A. Reversing the current direction will cause the force deflecting the wire to be parallel to the magnetic field. B. Reversing the current direction will cause the force deflecting the wire to be perpendicular to the magnetic field but in the opposite direction. C. Reversing the current direction will cause the force deflecting the wire to be parallel to the velocity of the charge. D. Reversing the current direction will not affect the force deflecting the wire.

User: If the current in a wire is directed upward, what is the direction of the magnetic field produced by the current? A. counterclockwise in the horizontal plane B. clockwise in the horizontal plane C. in the same direction as the current D. in the opposite direction to the current

Weegy: If the current in a wire is directed upward,the direction of the magnetic field produced by the current is counterclockwise in the horizontal [ plane. ]
