Textbook Problem

Parallel wires exert magnetic forces on each other. What about perpendicular wires? Imagine two wires oriented perpendicular to each other and almost touching. Each wire carries a current. Is there a force between the wires?

To determine
Whether two perpendicular wires carrying current in them exert force on each other.

Explanation
Consider two wires perpendicular to each other, almost touching. The magnetic field of the straight wires will be concentric circles around the wire.

The direction of magnetic field because of one wire will have opposite directions at the two ends of the other wire...
