An electric coil between a magnet

We can see that within the same magnetic field the same coil of wire has two opposing electrical currents.

A coil from an electric circuit placed between two magnets

If we use Flemings left hand rule which is used when electricity is already being passed through a wire we can determine the forces on each of the wires.

Using Flemings left hand rule on a coil between two magnets

The forces of motion on the wires can be shown as follows:

The forces on a coil between two magnets

If we could pivot this coiled wire we would get a turning motion.

The forces on the coil cause it to spin around the pivot points

The coil would start to spin
