A circular current loop of magnetic moment M is in an arbitrary orientation in an external magnetic field B. The work done to rotate the loop by 30° about an axis perpendicular to its plane is
Potential energy of a loop in a uniform magnetic field is given by
M is magnetic moment of the current carrying loop,
B is magnetic field in which the loop is kept,
θ is the angle between M and B.
So, the change in potential energy of the loop will give the work done by the magnetic field as initial and final kinetic energy is 0. Since, there is no change in angle between M bad B when we are rotating the loop along the axis perpendicular to its plane so, there will be no change in the potential energy of the loop. And, W= Uf – Ui, where Ui is initial potential energy of the loop and Uf is final energy of the loop. So, W=0.
Hence, our answer is option (d).

A rectangular conducting loop consists of two wires on two opposite sides of length l joined together by rods of length d. The wires are each of the same material but with cross-sections differing by a factor of 2. The thicker wire has a resistance R and the rods are of low resistance, which in turn are connected to a constant voltage source V0. The loop is placed in uniform a magnetic field B at 45° to its plane. Find τ, the torque exerted by the magnetic field on the loop about an axis through the centres of rods.
