A 2 m long metal rod having a mass per unit length λ = 65 g/m carries a current I = 1 A. The rod hangs from two vertical wires in a uniform vertical magnetic field as shown. The wires make an angle θ = 10 degrees with the vertical when in equilibrium. Determine the magnitude of the magnetic field. (Answer in Teslas.)

-I am unsure of what to do here I used the right hand rule and found the direction of Fb force vector.

- Do i need to do summation of forces to find B? Or is there a quicker way by simply manipulating the equation FB=ILxB?

I appreciate any input, thanks guys
