Problem 1 The figure below shows a long straight wire with current i to the right and three wire loops, all with the same clockwise current around them. The loops are all at the same distance from the long wire and have edge lengths of either L or 2L. What is the direction of the net force on each loop due to the current in the long straight wire? Rank the loops according to the magnitude of this net force, greatest first. Explain your answer.
