## Thrown for a Loop

Round and round it goes. Class members observe a current carrying loop in a magnetic field and calculate its associated torque. They then apply what they have learned to example problems to solve for the torque and to calculate the energy of the loop.

##### Instructional Ideas

• Show a video of a loop rotating because of the magnetic force applied to it
• Provide other examples for the class to do
##### Classroom Considerations

• The class should have an understanding of rotation and torque
• The fifth in a 14-part series
##### Pros

• The homework answer key shows the calculations required to arrive at the answer
• The lesson plan contains a labeling scheme in order to draw the two-dimensional representations of what is happening in three dimensions
##### Cons

• The lesson plan does not lay out an instructional strategy
##### Included Materials

• Current Loops in Magnetic Fields Homework
• Current Loops in Magnetic Fields Homework Solutions
• Project
• Vocabulary
