Torque and magnetic fields

Homework Statement


The problem is as seen in the attachment.


Homework Equations


T(torque) = (N)(I)(A)(B)(Sin(theta))


The Attempt at a Solution


For this question I used the above formula to find the magnitude of the torque, but what I am not sure about is which orientation would produce the "maximum torque" that it is asking about.

Could someone please tell me which orientation would give a "maximum torque" and why?

By the way, I calculated the magnitude of the torque to be 18 Newton*meters.

[tex]\theta [/tex] is the angle between the coil and the the direction of magnetic induction. or rather the direction of the current and the magnetic induction. Now try putting the values of [tex]\theta[/tex] accordingly and try and get the answer. By the way, what did you take the value theta to be, when you calculated its magnitude as 18Nm?
