## Homework Statement

A 15-turn rectangular loop of wire of width 10 cm and length 20 cm has a current of 2.5 A flowing through it. Two sides of the loop are oriented parallel to a uniform magnetic field of strength 0.037 T, and the other two sides are perpendicular to the magnetic field. (a) What is the magnitude of the magnetic moment of the loop? (b) What torque does the magnetic field exert on the loop?

## Homework Equations

(a)- μ0 = NIA

(b)- torque = μ0 x B

## The Attempt at a Solution

have the answer but would like to know the direction of A( area), the μ0, and also the direction of the field (B) and the torque.

I believe A's direction is perpendicular to the loop?

im unsure for the mu, Torque, and field
