Solution

## The correct option is D √2Iπr2As the two coils are held perpendicular to each other, so their normals are also perpendicular to each other, further since magnetic moments are directed along normals, therefore the two magnetic moments are perpendicular to each other.Now, M1=M2=IA=Iπr2M=√M21+M22=M√2=√2Iπr2
