a wire along the z-axis carries a current of 7.7 A in the positive z direction. find the force  (magnitude and direction) exerted on a 4.7 cm long lenght of the wire by a uniform magnetic field with magnitude 0.32 T in the x-direction

Any ideas???

ok Ozo , then that should be :

F = 7.7 * 0.047(z) * x(0.32) = 0.116 N  along the Y direction..

did i get it right ??
