**1. Homework Statement**

A phonograph record of radius R carrying a unifrom surface charge sigma is rotating at a cosntant angular velocity omega. Find its magnetic dipole moment

**2. Homework Equations**

[tex] m = int I \bullet da [/tex]

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Need to find the current first

well the sruface charge density is

[tex] K = \sigma \omega R [/tex]

[tex] K = \frac{dI}{dl_{perp}} [/tex]

where dl perp is the infinitesimal widthruning parallel to the flow of current

so here dl perp refers to circumference

[tex] I = \int K \bullet 2 \pi r dr [/tex]??

is this even close to being right??

I fear i may have made some geomterical error..

thanks for your help!
