The effects due to the interaction of a current-carrying loop with a magnetic field have many applications, some as common as the electric motor. This problem illustrates the basic principles of this interaction. Consider a current that flows in a plane rectangular current loop with height = 4.00 and horizontal sides = 2.00 . ( Intro 1 figure ) The loop is placed into a uniform magnetic field in such a way that the sides of length are perpendicular to , and there is an angle

Unformatted text preview: between the sides of length and , as shown in the figures. Will the interaction of the current through the loop with the magnetic field cause the loop to rotate? Yes, the net torq and tends to rota decreasing angle Yes, the net torque acting on the loop is positive and tends to rota increasing angle (counterclockwise). No, the net torque acting on the loop is zero and the loop is in eq No, the net force acting on the loop is zero and the loop is in equ...

What students are saying

• 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.
