Solution

## Step1: The magnetic Lorentz force acting on the circular loop of radius r carrying current $\mathrm{i}$ is zero Since the plane of magnetic field is perpendicular to current element.Hence the force acting on it is zero.Step2: We can express Lorentz force mathematically as:$F=qE+qv×B$It is the force which is exerted on (q) charged particle with v velocity through electric field E and magnetic field B.Lorentz force are used in Particle acceleration and cyclotronA bubble chamber also uses a Lorentz forceHence the force acting on it is zero.
