Note: this is different from the Coulomb force between like or unlike charges.

How about the magnitude? Torque on loop is τ = L F sin( ϕ ) = I LW B sin( ϕ ) • F a b c d B I X F W L a b c d F F L B I W θ F= I B Wsin θ θ =90º On b-c and a-d sections F = I B W The area of the loop is A = WL ϕ torque is τ = I A B sin( ϕ ) φ Torque on Rotated Loop 10/3/11 Physics 104, Fal 2011 8 a b c d B n o rm a l = μ φ The torque tries to line up the normal with B ! Even if the loop is not rectangular, as long as it is flat ( area ) Magnitude Direction: N = # of loops F F τ = IAB sin φ τ = μ B sin φ = NIA ( ) B sin φ Torque on Rotated Loop What is the torque on the loop below? 1) τ < IAB 2) τ = IAB 3) τ > IAB 10/3/11 Physics 104, Fal 2011 9 x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x τ = 0 Σ φ = 0 Torque Question 10/3/11 Physics 104, Fal 2011 10 Compare the torque on loop 1 and 2 which have identical area, and current....
