Falling Square Loop. A vertically oriented, square loop of copper wire falls from a region where the field is horizontal, uniform, and perpendicular to the plane of the loop, into a region where the field is zero. The loop is released from rest and initially is entirely within the magnetic-field region. Let the side length of the loop be s and let the diameter of the wire be d. The resistivity of copper is ρR and the density of copper is ρm. If the loop reaches its terminal speed while its upper segment is still in the magnetic-field region, find an expression for the terminal speed.
