Solve: Since and are in the same direction their vector sum has magnitude and is directed toward the bottom of the page in Figure 20.33a. and is directed to the right. The vector addition diagram for and is given in Figure 20.33b. and The net force has magnitude 0.724 N and its direction is specified by in Figure 20.33b. Reflect: All three current segments are perpendicular to the magnetic field, so for each in the force equa- tion. The direction of the force on a segment depends on the direction of the current for that segment. 20.34. Set Up: The direction of the magnetic force is given by the right-hand rule applied to the directions of I and The torque due to a force equals the force times the moment arm, the perpendicular distance between the axis and the line of action of the force. Solve: (a) The direction of the magnetic force on each segment of the circuit is shown in Figure 20.34. For segments bc and da the current is parallel or antiparallel to the field and the force on these segments is zero.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
