  1. For the torque on a solenoid in field B oriented at angle a, see
    http://library.thinkquest.org/16600/advanced/magneticfields.shtml

    The torque G is given is in terms of N I A, where N is the number of solenoid turns or area A, and I is the solenoid current. See if you can relate that to the solenoid-produced field
