Wire and loop#
The inifinite, straight wire shown in the figure carries a current \(I_1\). The rectangular loop, whose long sides are parallel to the wire, carries a current \(I_2\).
Find an expression for the magnitude of the force on the rectangular loop due to the magnetic field of the wire.
You may copy and paste the Greek character μ0 into you symbolic expression.
