Consider a circular loop of wire lying in the plane of the table. Let the current pass through the loop clockwise. Apply the right-hand rule to find out the direction of the magnetic field inside and outside the loop.

##### Solution :-

For the downward direction of the current, the direction of the magnetic field will be as if emerging from the table outside the loop and merging to the table inside the loop. Similarly, for current flowing in the upward direction, the direction of the magnetic field will as if they are emerging from the table outside the loop and merging to the table inside the loop as shown in the figure.
