#### Solution

Given:
Magnetic field, vecB = B_0(1 + x/1)veck
Length of the edge of a square loop = l
Electric current flowing through it = i
As per the question, the loop is placed with its edges parallel to the XY axes. In the figure, arrow denotes the direction of force on different sides of the square.
The net magnetic force experienced by the loop,
vecF = ivecl  xx vecB
Force on AB:
Consider a small element of length dx at a distance x from the origin on line AB.
Force on this small element,
dF = iB_0 on the full length of AB,
FAB = $\int\limits_{x=0}^{x=0}$ iB_0 (1 + x/l)

= iB_0 $\int\limits_{x=0}^{x=0}$ (dx + 1/l xdx)
= iB_0(l + 1/2)

= (3iBgl)/(2)
Force on AB will be acting downwards.
Similarly, force on CD,
F_2 = iB_0 (l + l/2)

=(3iBgl)/(2)
Force on AB will be acting downwards.
Similarly, force on CD,
F_2 = iB_0 (l + 1/2)
= (3iBgl)/2
So, the net vertical force = F1  F2 = 0
Force on AD,
F_4 = iB_0l (1 + 1/l)
= 2iB0l
Force on BC
F_4 = iB_0l(1 + 1/l)
=2iB0l
So, the net horizontal force = F4F3 = iB0l
