Problem: A long wire carrying 4.50 A of current makes two 90° bends, as shown in the figure. The bent part of the wire passes through a uniform 0.500 T magnetic field directed as shown in the figure and confined to a limited region of space. What is the magnitude of the net force acting on the wire?
