Is mass*acceleration =BIL (magnetic force *current *length )

  1. Jan 25, 2015 #1
    As we know force =mass*acceleration & force =BIL. Can we make this equation as ma=BIL?

    Depends on the situation.

    That should be ##F_{net}=ma## and ##F_{MagneticForceOnWirePerpendicularToField}=BIL## so when ##F_{net}=F_{MagneticForceOnWirePerpendicularToField}## then ##ma=BIL##.

    When you use a variable in physics you need to know what physical quantity it represents, not just the letter.
