Problem 32P

The magnetic force exerted on a 1.2-m segment of straight wire is 1.6 N. The wire carries a current of 3.0 A in a region with a constant magnetic field of 0.50 T. What is the angle between the wire and the magnetic field?

Solution 32 P:

Step 1 of 1:-

Here, we have to calculate the angle between the magnetic field and the current carrying wire.

The charged particles in the wire will experience the force.

We know that,

We also know that,

So, the force equation will become,

.

Here,

.

So, the force will be,

So, the angle is .
