Homework Help: physics

Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, March 15, 2008 at 6:12pm.

An 8m long copper wire with a cross-sectional area of 1.0 x 10^-4 m^2, in the sshape of square loop, is connected to a .10-V battery. If the loop is placed in a uniform magnetic field of magnitude .4T, what is the maximum torque that can act on it? The resistivity of copper is 1.7x10^-8 omega*m (answer: 120 N*m) I can't seem to get the answer. Any help is appreciated!

work:
I=V/R=(.10V)/((1.7x10^-8)/8m))
torque=BIA=(.4T)(I)(10^-4 m^2)
