Rotating charge

A charge of 4.0 x 10^-6 C is placed on a small conducting sphere that is located at the end of a thin insulating rod whose length is 0.20 m. The rod rotates with an angular speed of 150 radians/second about an axis that passes perpendicularly through its other end. What is the magnetic moment of the rotating charge?

Solution Summary

Problem has been solved based on the principle accelerating charge constitutes current flow.
