ILB = mg5*1*B =(1/10)10B =1/5 T. Hope it clears. If u have doubt then please ask.Please approve the answer.

Hi,
As the wire is balanced in mid air, the downward force is equal to the upward force, i.e, the gravitational force is equal to the magnetic force due to the magnetic field B.
Mg=BIL \sin \theta
as B is perpendicular to the current carrying wire, \theta = 90 \Rightarrow sin\theta =1
\therefore Mg= BIL
sustituting the values, in SI units, { g = 9.8m/s2 }
0.1 * 9.8 = B * 5 * 1
B= 0.98/5 T
or B= 0.196 T.
 
hope it is understandable,...
