Consider an elliptical shaped single wire loop having a major axis of H=40.0 cmH=40.0 \text{ cm} and a minor axis of L=30.0 cm,L=30.0 \text{ cm}, which is in a uniform magnetic field of 6.00×104 T6.00 \times 10^{-4} \text{ T} directed toward the left of the screen. The wire loop lies in the plane of the screen and carries a clockwise current of 6.00 A.6.00 \text{ A}. What is the approximate magnitude of the torque on the coil?

Note: The area of an ellipse is A=πab,A=\pi ab, where aa and bb are, respectively, the semi-major and semi-minor axes of the ellipse.

Suppose that a circular path of radius r=5.10×1011 m,r=5.10 \times 10^{-11} \text{ m}, on which an electron moves with speed 2.40×106 m/s,2.40 \times 10^6 \text{ m/s}, lies in a uniform magnetic field of magnitude B=7.40 mT.B=7.40 \text{ mT}. If we treat the circular path as a current loop, what is the approximate maximum possible magnitude of the torque produced on the loop by the magnetic field?
