1. Homework Statement

1) I need to write the equation for torque on a current carrying loop in a magnetic field, which I believe i did correctly under the relevant euations section, does this formula look correct?

2) Use the right hand rule to determine the direction of the torque on the current carrying loop as shown in the figure

## Homework Equations

T=NIABsintheta can be used to calculate torque a loop of N turns and A area, carrying I current feels in the prescence of a magnetic field B

## The Attempt at a Solution

As for question 2, if I place my fingers in the direction of I, wouldn't I put them along the x axis pointing toward the positive x axis, then curl them toward B, which would mean by palm would have to be upwards, leaving my thumb which would be the torque pointing outwards?

This is a little confusing to me I am not sure if I am using the correct formula or the proper use of the right hand rule

thanks!
