1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider a wire loop in a 1.88 T magnetic field (coming out of the board at a 55.0° angle). The loop is 0.300 m tall and 0.400 m wide, carrying a 2.90 A current traveling in a clockwise direction. The loop feels a torque that causes the spring to compress. If the spring is compressed by 4.30 mm, what is the spring constant? The attempt at a solution This is what i tried. I don't feel I am getting the right answer. Torque is T = IABsinθ (2.90 A)(0.120 m^2)(1.88 T)sin(55.0) =0.536 I know that Torque is also = Frsinθ I then rearranged the formula to get F = Torque/rsinθ (0.536)/(0.15)(sin55) = 4.36 = F I plug my Force value into the F=kx formula. In order to find k, I did (4.36)/(0.0043) which gave me k = 1013.9 This does not seem correct to me. Where did I go wrong?
