Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you should know all of this this http://hyperphysics.phyastr.gsu.edu/hbase/magnetic/forwir2.html in terms of magnitude, \(F = B\times I \times L\), so just plug in the numbers in terms of direction, you have \( \hat{ I}_{E2W} \times \hat{B}_{S2N} = \hat{F}_{out \ of \ page}\) for that you need the right hand rule, see attached.
