Question: the magnetic field acting on a charged particle can never...

Question details

The magnetic field acting on a charged particle can never do work because at every instant the force is perpendicular to the velocity. The toque exerted by a magnetic field can do to the velocity. The torque exerted by a magnetic field can do work on a current loop when the loop rotates. Explain how these apparently contradictory statements can be reconciled.
