A rectanglular loop consists of 5 turns of wire carrying a current of 2.8 A. The loop is in the x-y plane, and the direction of flow of the current is shown in the figure. The loop has dimensions a = 4 cm and b = 5 cm. Consider a uniform magnetic field of strength 3.8 × 10-4 T in x, y, or z directions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need to find the:

-Fa on x-axis

-Fb on y-axis

-Fa on z-axis

-Fb on z-axis

For the X-axis, I found that torque is 1.064e-5 and Fb=0

For the y-axis, I found the torque is 1.064e-5 and Fa=0

I also found that the torque for z-axis is 0.

But, how do I find the other Fa and Fb?

I am given: F=I*L*B sin(theta)
