 # A current-carrying rectangular wire loop with width a = 0.120 m and length b = 0.200 m is in the xy -plane, supported by a non-conducting, frictionless axle of negligible weight A current of I = 3.00 A travels counterclockwise in the circuit (Fig. P19.38). Calculate the magnitude and direction of the force exerted on the (a) left and (b) right segments of wire by a uniform magnetic field of 0.250 T that points in the positive x - direction. Find the magnetic force exerted on the (c) top and (d) bottom segments. (e) Find the magnitude of the net torque on the loop about the axle. Figure P19.38 ### College Physics
