Extension of Ch. 29, 54E

After evaluating the force on each current segment, find the net torque exerted about the axis of rotation (which is where?) by direct evalution of r x F for each segment.

Calculate the magnetic dipole moment of this triangular current loop and evaluate the torque from mu x B. Compare to previous answer!
