2. Fist right-hand rule: is a method you can use to determine the direction of a magnetic field relative to the direction of conventional current.

Second right-hand rule: is a method you can use to determine the direction of the field produced by an electromagnet relative to the flow of conventional current.

Third right hand rule: the direction of the force on a current-carrying wire in a magnetic field can be found by this rule.

Fourth right-hand rule: to find the force on the charges in the wire use this rule
