magnetic field is 5.9 x 10^-5 Telsapoints North 72 degrees below the horizontal. Find the directionand magnitude of the magnetic force exerted on a 250m length ofwire if the current flows (a) horrizontally towards the east b) Horizontally towards the south a) Magnetic force acting on the wire when the current flowshorrizontally towards the east is F = BILsin θ = (5.9*10 -5 T)(110A)(250m)sin90 o Direction is points towards North, 18 o above thehorizontal. b) Magnetic force acting on the wire when the current flowshorizontally towards the south is F= BILsin θ = (5.9*10 -5 T)(110A)(250m)sin72 o Direction is points towards East. 22.43 Two currents loops, one square and the other circular have one turnmade from wires of the same length a)if these loops carry the same current and are placed in amagnetic field of equal

magntidude is the maximum torque of thesquare loop greater than, less than or the same as the maximumtorque of the circular loop. Explain b) Calculate the ratio of the maximum torques τ square/ τ circle We know that maximum torque τ = NIAB N = 1 turn B = magnetic field I= current i n the loops let length of the wire be l Then perimeter of the square is 4a = l Then a = l/4 Area of the square is A = a 2 =(l/4) 2 circumference of the circle is 2 π r = l Then r = l/2 π area of the circlular loop A = π r 2 = π ( l/2 π ) 2 = l 2 /4 π Then τ square = 1*I*(l/4) 2 *B =BIl 2 /16 Now τ circle =1*I*(l 2 /4 π )*B = BIl 2 /4 π thus maximum torque on the square coil is less than maximumtorque on the circular coil.

    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.
