Homework Equations
f[itex]_{m}[/itex] = IL X B
B =[itex]\frac{μ_{0}*I}{2∏*R}[/itex]
The Attempt at a Solution
Magnetic Field from Wire at Top
B = [itex]\frac{4∏*10^{7}*10}{2∏*2*10^{2}}[/itex]
B = .0001
Magnetic Field from Wire at Bottom
B = [itex]\frac{4∏*10^{7}*10}{2∏*5*10^{2}}[/itex]
B = .00004
Force on top of wire
F[itex]_{m}[/itex] = 8*5*10[itex]^{2}[/itex]*.0001
F[itex]_{m}[/itex] = .00004
Force on bottom of wire
F[itex]_{m}[/itex] = 8*5*10[itex]^{2}[/itex]*.00004
F[itex]_{m}[/itex] = .0000016
Hello everyone! Heard about you awesome guys from a classmate, kinda late in the semester but better late than never :tongue:. At this point I'm not sure what to do. I assume the two sides that are parallel to each other will cancel each other out at this point, but I'm not sure. Also I wanted to be sure the formulas I used were used properly above!
