Two wires of equal lengths are bent in the form of two loops. One of the loops is square shaped whereas the other loop is circular. These are suspended in a uniform magnetic field and the same current is passed through them. Which loop will experience greater torque? Give reasons.

Ans: We know the expression for torque as, $$ \begin{array}{l} \tau=\mathrm{NIAB} \\ \Rightarrow \tau \propto \mathrm{A} \end{array} $$ Since, we know that the area of circular loops is more than...
