Solution: A rectangular loop of wire (with sides labeled as 1, 2, 3, and 4) having width w = 3.00 cm and length l = 6.00 cm, carrying a current iloop = 25.0 A, is located at the distance d = 3.00 cm from a long, straight wire carrying a current i = 60.0 A. μ0 = 4π x 10-7 Tm/A.What is the net force on the rectangular loop? Show all the steps.
