## find the current given length and magnetic field strength

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What is the current in a long wire if the magnetic field strength 1.0 cm from the wire's axis is 55 mu T.

i know magnetic field strength which is 1 cm
i know the length which is 55 milli-tesla.
I need to find Current in Amperes which is I.

The chapter gives me the equation down below to use but the question does not give me an angle or a force.

2. Relevant equations

Use F = I * L * B sin theta

3. The attempt at a solution

Check your inputs. It's not about finding the correct number, it's more about understanding the quantities and what they represent.
