A loop ABCD carrying current I is placed near a wire that carrying current I0 inwards as shown in figure.
Magnetic field produced by the current carrying wire at segments AB and CD is parallel to the current flow in the loop.
Hence in the segments there will not be force due to magnetic field.
But in segments BC and AD force will be generated due to the current flow in the loop and
magnetic field produced by the current carrying wire.

Let dl be a small current element in segment BC which is at a distance l from wire as shown in figure.
Force dF on current element dl is given by ,   dF= B×I×dl  ..................(1)
where B is magnetic field due to current carrying wire and B is given by,
Hence we have,   ........................(2)
Similarly we can consider a small current element dl in segment AD and get the force as given in eqn.(2)

These two forces acting as a couple and torque  dτ due to this couple is given by

dτ = 2lsinα × dF = ..........(3)
Total torque τ on the loop is given by,
