Problem P. 4219. (January 2010)

P. 4219. The piece of rigid wire, shown in the figure, and which can freely turn about the vertical axis of PQ, is placed into uniform horizontal magnetic field. B=0.05 T, r=0.05 m, \ell=0.3 m. A current of I=10 A flows in the wire and the mass of one metre-long wire is 10 dkg. What is the period of this piece of wire when it is oscillating with small amplitude?
