Line Integrals, Surface Integrals, Green’s, Divergence, and Stokes’ Theorems

1. A semi-circular loop of wire of radius 1m and carrying current [pic] in the counterclockwise direction is subjected to a magnetic field in the z-direction such that [pic]. Determine the net force acting on the wire segment.

2. Find the center of mass of an object constructed from two uniform segments [pic] and [pic], where x ranges from 0 to 1.
