A circular coil of radius R and N turns has negligible resistance. As shown in the schematic figure, its two ends are connected to two wires and it is hanging by those wires with its plane being vertical. The wires are connected to a capacitor with charge Q through a switch. The coil is in a horizontal uniform magnetic field B0 parallel to the plane of the coil. When the switch is closed, the capacitor gets discharged through the coil in a very short time. By the time the capacitor is discharged fully, magnitude of the angular  momentum gained by the coil will be (assume that the discharge time is so  short that the coil has hardly rotated during this time)-

Correct answer is


Torque experienced by circular loop = \(\vec M \times \vec B\) 

where \(\vec M\) is magnetic moment 

\(\vec B\) is magnetic field
