sUPPOSE YOU HAVE A square coil and a triangular coil each have sides of length L. The triangular coil has twice as many turns as the square coil. If a the same current is sent through each coil, when the coils are placed in the same uniform magnetic field making an angle of 30° with the planes of the coils, which coil experiences the greater torque?

It depends on the magnitude of the magnetic field that the coils are placed in.
2. Both coils experience the same torque.
3. the triangular coil
4. the square coil
