suppose that you're facing a straight current carrying conductor, and the current is following toward you.the lines of magnetic force at any point in the magnetic field will act in? A)the same direction as the current. B)a clockwise direction. C)the direction opposite to the current. D)a counterclockwise direction.
If electrons are moving out toward you , then the magnetic field is clockwise. When specifing current direction, the convention is to speak of + current, but I suspect you are thinking on the flow of electrons (electrons flow in the opposite direction of + current )
