Plzz look at Fig. 27.32 in the follwing link :

The right-hand rule determines the direction of the magnetic moment of a current-carrying loop. This is also the direction of the loop's area vector A; the loop's magnetic moment is m = I A.

TORQUE

t = m x B

From the right-hand rule we see that the torque vector t is directed into the page or screen. The torque tends to rotate the solenoid in a clockwise direction.
