(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 500 mm conductor inside an electric motor has a force of 1.5 newtons exerted on it. If it is at right angles to a magnetic field of flux density 0.6 T, calculate the current flowing in the conductor.

2. Relevant equations

F=B.I.L

3. The attempt at a solution

B = 0.6T

F = 1.5N

L = 500mm = 0.5m

I =?

1.5 = 0.6*I*0.5

I = 1.5/0.3= 5 amps.
