Homework Help: physics

Posted by raks on Saturday, March 8, 2008 at 2:57am.

A high-voltage line of length 175 m is carrying a current of 105 A at a point on the earth where its magnetic field is 5 * 10^(-5) T and points North,34 degree from the vertical axis.
A) what is the magnitude and direction of the force on the wire if the current is flowing horizontally to the North?
HINT: horizontal is 90 degree from the vertical axis. Also, it may keep your brain from hurting too much by drawing the two dimensional "North- vertical" plane.
B)What is the magnitude and direction of the force on the wire if the current is flowing horizontally to the east?
Hint: Again the North-vertical plane is your friend.
