Textbook Problem

A wire carries a current of 10.0 A in a direction that makes an angle of 30.0° with the direction of a magnetic field of strength 0.300 T. Find the magnetic force on a 5.00-m length of the wire.

To determine
The magnetic force on the wire.

Explanation

Given info: The magnitude of the current is 10.0A and is making an angle of 30° with the direction of the magnetic field. The magnitude of the magnetic field is 0.300T . The length of the wire is 5.00m .

Explanation:

The magnitude of the magnetic force on a current carrying wire is given by,

F=BILsinθ

  • B is the magnetic field
  • I is the current on the wire
  • L is the length of the wire
  • θ is the angle between the direction of current and the magnetic field

Substitute 10.0A for I , 0
