Here's the question:
"What is the magnetic field at the center of the loop in the figure?"
OK, the question is really simple and it looks easy. However, when I put in the answer, it's wrong. I tried different methods/formulas but still got the wrong answers. Anyone cares to enlighten me?
First, I used the formula B = I(mju_0)N/2R:
 I is 5A
 mju_0 is 4pi * 10^7
 N is 1
 R is 0.01 m
The wrong answer was 3.14×104 T.
I then tried modified B = (2*10^7)I/R (I multiplied this equation w/ some whole numbers to account for the multi directions of the field  which I then realized that it was the wrong way) I still got the wrong answers.
I then think, hell, the field might cancel out to zero, which was still wrong. (Obviously, the field was in one direction.)
PLEASE HELP. I'm desperate.
