Hello everybody,

I am finding it difficult to master the right hand rule. when a question states that the field points into the plane of the paper, is the paper lying flat on the table or is it lying up against the computer screen.
Also if anyone can tell me how to master this topic- a website or a link.

Thank you

The plane of the paper can be whatever you make it so long as you rotate the other things accordingly.

There are several right hand rules, so your best bet is to google "hyperphysics right hand rule" and pick the one you want.
