    Ok, I thought that a changing electric field would induce a current perpendicular to the direction of force of that field.

    I thought this was fundamental. If I have a wire running north and south, carrying a large AC current, and subsequent large electric field around it, and that wire was right next to a wire running east and west, then I would induce a current in that east-west wire.

    Although I'm not sure about that same situation if we are working with DC...

    Do I have this correct?
