Part of a single rectangular loop of wire with dimensions shown in Fig. 21–62 is situated inside a region of uniform magnetic field of 0.550 T. The total resistance of the loop is $0.230 \; \Omega$. Calculate the force required to pull the loop from the field (to the right) at a constant velocity of 3.10 m/s. Neglect gravity.
