Current carrying rectangle loop in the magnetic field

A rectangular wire loop with a cross-sectional area of 5,000 cm^2 carries a current of 0.50 amperes. The loop is free to rotate about an axis that is perpendicular to uniform magnetic field strength of 0.40 Tesla. The plane of the loop is initially at an angle of 25 degrees to the direction of the magnetic field. What is the magnitude of the torque on the loop?

Solution Summary

The solution shows detailed calculation of the torque on the current carrying loop in the uniform magnetic field.
