The torque due to this pair Of forces (a'uple) is C = 2BlLnR. However. the "'il area A equals 2RL, so that


If the magnetic field is radial (see Fig. 23.6a). then B is always parallel to the plane Of the even when the coil is allowed to rotate. and C — HAIn still. If instead the field is uniform (sce Fig. 23.6b and c). then the component of B which is effective is B cos o (sce diagram). and the torque

In an ordinary mosing-coil meter the current to be measured flows through the coil, the field is radial, and the torque BAIn turns the coil. The turning tightens a spring which therefore produces an torque of k newlon metre per unit angle Of rotation.

The torque BAIn is also used to prtxluce rotation in simple electric motors.

The Earth's magnetism

In the United Kingdom the direction Of the magnetic flux density due to the Earth's magnetism makes an angle O (called the •angle Of dip') Of about 70' to the horizontal. The horizontal coml¾'nent of this flux density B is B cos o, and the vertical component is  = BsinO.
