The orientation of small satellites is often controlled using
torque from current - carrying coils in Earth’s magnetic field.
Suppose a multiturn coil has a cross - sectional area of 6.36 =
10-4 m2, dissipates 0.200 W of electrical power from a 5.00 - V
power supply, and provides a magnetic moment of magnitude
0.020 0 A · m2. (a) Find the coil current I. (b) Calculate
the number of turns in the coil. (c) Calculate the maximum
magnitude of torque if Earth’s magnetic field has magnitude
3.75 x 10-5 T at the satellite’s location.
