A 34.5 cm wire carrying a current of 12.0 A passes through a magnetic field of 2.35 x 102 T. (a) What is the maximum force exerted on the wire?

  • physics -

    F = B I L

    L = 0.345 m
    B = 235 T
    I = 12.0 A

    Answer F will be in Newtons.

    You get the maximum force when the wire and the B-field are perpendicular.
