FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. Which Experiment is Known as the Base of Electromagnetic Effect?

Answer: The experiment conducted by Hans Oersted in 1820 is known as the electromagnetic field base. In his experiment, Oersted observed that a magnetic field was produced around it when electricity passes through a conducting wire. He detected the magnetic field with a compass placed near the current-carrying wire. If a compass is brought in the vicinity of the current-carrying wire, the needle deflects in a definite direction. The direction of the deflected needle shows the direction of the electromagnetic field.


The experiment by Oersted is a significant yet straightforward experiment that proved the existence of the electromagnetic effect of current. Hence, this experiment is known as the base of the electromagnetic effect.

2. How will you Find the Direction of the Magnetic Field?

Answer: There are many processes of finding the direction of the magnetic field. Practically, the direction of the magnetic field is indicated by the compass needle's movement within the magnetic field.


Apart from this, there are a few rules that help determine the direction of the magnetic field. One of them is the right-hand thumb rule. It states that if we hold the current-carrying wire in our right hand such that the thumb points toward the direction of the current flow, then the fingers encircling the wire points towards the magnetic field lines’ direction. Maxwell stated the right-hand thumb rule; hence, it is also known as Maxwell's right-hand thumb rule.
