Homework Help: Finding the Total Force on the Circuit Loop

  1. Mar 12, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The problem asks to find the Total Force on the Circuit Loop. I have a circuit loop with length 30.0 cm and width 10.0 cm with a current I2= 30.0 A that is flowing counter-clockwise. There is a wire that has the current I1=15.0 A flowing from left to right and is 7.50 cm from the circuit parallel to the long end.

    I don't really know where to start. I think it has something to do with magnetic fields and the Hall effect but even with that, I don't know where to begin.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    You need to make some attempt. At least determine the magnetic field from ##I_1## that is influencing the wires of the loop.
