This article presents a very detailed resolution of a non-trivial problem in Electromagnetic Theory. The problem basically consists of a circular conducting loop of radius R, which has a current I, and is located with its center at the origin of the Cartesian coordinate system. It is rotated with respect to the normal to its plane with angles of θ0 and φ0 in spherical coordinates, in addition, there is an applied External Magnetic Field. The forces generated by the magnetic field in all directions were calculated without approximations, where in the z direction the force is zero, as expected.
