What equations are needed to solve this problem? How would the equations change if it was a circular loop?

a) A square loop of the side length (a) carries a current (i) in the clockwise direction. The loop is placed in a magnetic field at an angle of 45 degrees to it (you can rotate the loop about the field as you like to make the problem simpler). What are the forces and torques on the loop and what are the final position and velocity of the loop?

b) This loop is put on top of a second identical loop, so that they are concentric. The current in the first loop is clockwise and increasing - What will be the sign of the current in the second loop?

(a) Let PQRS be the name of the loop. P is the corner where the current enters the loop. PQ and RS are vertical and parallel. QR and SP are parallel and horizontal. The force on QR, F, is perpendicular to both QR and B at an angle of 90 + 45 = 135 degrees with the vertical (anti-clock wise).

Solution Summary

This is a tutorial on how to determine what equations are needed to solve questions on currents, loops, and torques.

Consider a rectangular loop of length l (parallel to x) width w (parallel to y) total resistance R, is being pulled at constant force F=fx. If at tiem t=0 it is aligned with the front edge at x=0, has velocity vx, and the magnetic field everywhere is
B= 0 x<0
B= BoZ x>0
solve and draw plots for the time dependence of:

1. A bead slides without friction around a loop-the-loop. The bead is released from a height of 8.5 m from the bottom of the loop-the-loop which has a radius 3 m.The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s. What speed is it at point a?
2. A bobsled slides down an ice track starting (at zero initial speed) from the top of a(n) 171

A rectangular conducting loop of width w, height h, and resistance R is mounted vertically on a nonconducting cart (see attachment). The cart is placed on the inclined portion of a track and released from rest at position P1 at a height y above the horizontal portion of the track. It rolls with negligib

A construction worker on a new high-rise building drops a wrench and it falls 78.4 m to the ground. How fast is it moving when it hits, assuming no air resistance? Use g = 9.8 m/s2.

1) A plane flies 485 km away from its base at 708 m/s, then flies back to its base at 1062 m/s. What is the average speed in m/s?
2) See attachment and solve problems 15 - 17.

Given that the acceleration vector is a(t) = (-9cos(-3t)) i + (-9sin(-3t)) j + (-2t) k , the initial velocity is v(0) = i + k , and the initial position vector is r(0) = i+j+k , compute:
A. The velocity vector
B. The position vector

In problem 14.3(a), if the velocity of the 30 lb and 40 lb suit cases are 12 ft/s and 5 ft/s, respectively, when the first suit case of 30 lb was tossed into the carrier, the finalvelocity of the baggage carrier after the second baggage tossed into the carrier is:
a. 4.25 ft/s
b. 4.67 ft/s
c. 3.87 ft/s
d. 5.67 ft/s

I need help with a simple experiment.
I'm trying to create an experiment that relates to curvilinear motion. However, I'm unsure how to set up an experiment and show all the calculations. Can someone help me with creating a simple experiment to show what curvilinear motion is and do those calculations I can make up the data
