Magnetic field-determine the plane of coil makes with verticle

  1. Feb 29, 2004 #1
    a long piece of wire with a mass of 0.100kg and a total length of 4.00m is used to make a square coil with a side of 0.100m. the coil is hinged along a horizontal side, carries a 3.40-A current, and is placed in a vertical magnetic field with a magnitude of 0.0100T. (a) determine the angle that the place of the coil makes with the vertical when the coil is in equilibrium. (b) find the torque acting on the coil due to the magnetic force at equilibrium.
    please show steps, the correct answers are (a) 4.0 degree and (b) 3.4m(mN)
