Solution
Verified by Toppr

#### The rotation of the loop by 30° about an axis perpendicular to its plane make no change in the angle made by axis of the loop with the direction of magnetic field, therefore, the work done to rotate the loop is zero.Important point: The work done to rotate the loop the loop in magnetic field W=MB(cos θ1−cos θ2), where signs are as usual. 4

A circular loop carrying a current of 1.0 A is oriented in a magnetic field of 0.35 T. The loop has an area of 0.24 m2 and is mounted on an axis, perpendicular to the magnetic field, which allows the loop to rotate. If the plane of the loop is oriented parallel to the field, what torque is created by the interaction of the loop current and the field?
