A wire carries a current north. Above the wire the magnetic field is directed _________. Is it east?

You are looking at a coil carrying a current clockwise. The magnetic field at the center of the coil is directed _________. Is it right?

  • physics -

    No to both questions. If I remember my right hand rule correctly, the answers are "counterclockwise" and "at you"

    Thanks. I'm not good with the right hand rules and the websites I'm finding aren't really helping.
