Answer:The magnetic force will be 0.256 N in +y direction.

Explanation:It is given that, a wire along the z axis carries a current of 6.4 A in the z direction. Length of the wire is 8 cm. It is placed in uniform magnetic field with magnitude 0.50 T in the x direction.

The magnetic force in terms of length of wire is given by :

For direction,

So, the magnetic force will be 0.256 N in +y direction.
