1. Homework Statement
A loop carries current I = 2.5 A in the xy plane as shown in the figure above. The loop is made in the shape of a circular arc of radius R = 4 cm from qo = 60 ° to q = 360 ° . The loop is completed by horizontal and vertical sections as shown.
What is BA, the magnitude of the magnetic field at point A, the center of the circular arc?
2. Homework Equations
For the loop part....
3. The Attempt at a Solution
Well, that's it if it were a complete loop, but this is 300/360, or 5/6 of a loop. So I take that and divide by 1.2 and I get 3.27e^5.
Not sure about the other ones. My calculus is rusty at best.
It's hard to visualize maybe, but it's basically a circle from the 60 degree above the horizon all the way till the end, with a straight line going down to the horizontal center line and then a line connecting that line to the 0 degree mark on the curve.
As always, any help is appreciated.
