Homework Help: Interaction of a Current Loop with a Magnetic Field

  1. May 1, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Assume that the current flowing into the loop is 0.500A . If the magnitude of the magnetic field is 0.300 T, what is torque , the net torque about the vertical axis of the current loop due to the interaction of the current with the magnetic field?

    the loop is initially positioned at (theta)=30 degrees

    2. Relevant equations


    i know with the sin i have to subtract 90- theta

    3. The attempt at a solution

    When i plug in all the numbers correctly i get 1.03*10^-8

    Can any one help me i am on my last try. The answer must be in N*m

    Please provide the complete statement of the problem exactly as it was given. (A diagram would be helpful; lacking that, describe the direction of magnetic field compared to the orientation of the current loop.)
