I'm having difficulty understanding what the problem is. A Helmholtz
coil is just two coaxial circular turns, separated by a special distance
that makes the region between the turns have the "most uniform" field.
But I don't know where the "conductor" referred to in your question
is located with respect to the coil turns.
The answer from B. D. Prater appears to be for the trajectory of an electron injected
into this more-or-less uniform field region, a circle. Can you provide
more specific information about the experiment and to what the force is
applied to that you are asking about?
