# A single-turn current loop, carrying a current of 5.71 A, is in the shape of a right triangle with sides 49.6, 166, and 173 cm. The loop is in a uniform magnetic field of magnitude 112 mT whose direction is parallel to the current in the 173 cm side of the loop. What is the magnitude of the magnetic force on (a) the 173 cm side, (b) the 49.6 cm side, and (c) the 166 cm side? (d) What is the magnitude of the net force on the loop?
