(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A wire of length 0.655 m carries a current of 21.0 A. In the presence of a 0.470-T

magnetic field, the wire experiences a force of 5.46 N. What is the angle (less than

90degrees) between the wire and the magnetic field?

2. Relevant equations

Is there a special formula to solve this equation?

If what I have done below is correct, how do I find Theta if all I know is

the sin of Theta?

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the equation F=BILsinTheta

5.46=.655m*21.0A*.470T*sinTheta

5.46=6.46485*sinTheta

5.46/6.46485=sinTheta

.844567 = sinTheta
