## Homework Statement:

- This is a conceptual question.

## Relevant Equations:

- $$ \vec{\tau}=I \vec{A} \times \vec{B} $$

Can anyone please tell me why the torque on a circular current loop can be calculated by the equation below? In other words, what is the intuition for the formula? Thank you. (I modified my question to a particular case)

$$ \vec{\tau} = I \vec{A} \times \vec{B} $$

$$ \vec{\tau} = I \vec{A} \times \vec{B} $$
