1. Two long, straight, parallel wires carry currents that are directed perpendicular to the page as
shown above. Wire 1 carries a current I1 = 2.00 amperes into the page (in the negative z direction)
and passes through the x axis at x = +a. Wire 2 carries the same magnitude of current I2=2.00
amperes but instead directed out of the page (in the positive z direction) and passes through the x
axis at x = -2a. Let a = 3.00 cm.
1. a) Determine the magnitude and direction of the magnetic field at the origin (x = 0) due
to the current in these wires.
2. b) Calculate the magnitude and direction of the magnetic force per unit length on Wire 1
by Wire 2.
