A long piece wire of mass 0.1kg and length 4.0m is used to make a square coil 0.1m on a side.The coil is hinged along a horizontal side,carries a 3.4 A current,and is placed in a vertical magnetic field of mahitude 0.01 T.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a)Determine the angle that the plane of the coil makes with the vertical when the coil is in equilibrium.

I want to know what is meant by the 'square coil 0.1m on a side' phrase ?Is it mean each length of the coil is 0.1m ? or only one length is 0.1m and the other end is 3.9m making the dimension of the coil is (3.9 x 0.1) ?

Thanks for anybody that spend sometime on this question .
