As shown in the figure below, two long parallel wires (1 and 2) carry currents of I1 = 3.32 A and I2 = 4.50 A in the direction indicated. Two parallel wires point into the page. They are a distance d apart from each other, with the left wire labeled I_1 at the origin and the right wire labeled I_2 a distance d along the positive x-axis. There is a point labeled P directly above wire I_1 a distance d upon the positive y-axis. (a) Determine the magnitude and direction of the magnetic field at a point midway between the wires (d = 10.0 cm). magnitude 6.6E-8 Incorrect: Your answer is incorrect. What is the right-hand rule for currents? What is the direction of the magnetic field vector due to current I1? Due to current I2? What is the formula for the magnitude of the magnetic field due to a long, straight wire? Knowing each magnetic field vector, how must the vectors be added to find the net field? µT direction ° counterclockwise from the +x-axis (b) Determine the magnitude and direction of the magnetic field at point P, located d = 10.0 cm above wire 1. magnitude µT direction ° counterclockwise from the +x-axis
