Curl the fingers of your right hand into the palm and extend the thumb. The thumb indicates the direction of the current, and the direction of the fingers indicates the direction of the magnetic field.

a circle. using your right hand, if you point your thumb in the direction of the current, your fingers will curl around the wire in the shape of the magnetic field.

Around a positive charge we have a repulsive field and around negative charge we have an attractive field.

There is a convenient rule called the "right hand grip rule":If you grip your right hand around the electric conductor with your thumb pointing in the direction the current is flowing, the magnetic field rotates in the direction your remaining fingers are pointing.See related Wikipedia link for an illustration.

An electron is surrounded by an electric field. The electron is negatively charged. A moving electric charge creates a magnetic field. Use the "right-hand rule". Point your thumb up and curl your finger a bit so your hand looks like it is holding a bottle. If the electric charge (e.g. electron) is moving in the direction of your thumb, then the magnetic field it creates moves counter-clockwise in the direction of your fingers.

The right hand rule. If you were to place your right hand around the conductor, with the thumb pointing in the direction of current flow, your fingers which are wrapped around the conductor will point in the direction of magnetic flux. Said another way, if you are looking at the end of the conductor and current is flowing towards you, then magnetic flux will be counter-clockwise.

The perimeter of a field is how far it takes to walk around the edges. The area is how much land it covers. ■

a movable thumb. like our them. its apposable because we can move it around and bend it.

THUMB RULE:If we put our one thumb in the direction of magnetic flux passes through the conductor,then the movement of the fingures denotes the direction of current flow.

Perimeter = the distance around the edge of the field; how much fence it takes to enclose the field. Area = how much land-surface the field covers, i.e. how many corn-stalks can be planted on it. ================================= Perimeter: the distance around the edge of the floor in the room. Area: how much carpet it takes to cover the floor.
