You have a wire of length L = 2.1 m for making a square coil of a dc motor. The current in the coil is I = 1.8 A, and the magnetic field of the motor has a magnitude of B = 0.32 T. Find the maximum torque exerted on the coil when the wire is used to make (a) a single-turn square coil and (b) a two-turn square coil.
