Question

A long wire carrying a 5.0 A current perpendicular to the
*xy*-plane intersects the *x*-axis at
*x*=−2.0cm . A second, parallel wire carrying a 3.5 A
current intersects the *x*-axis at *x*=+2.0cm

At what point on the *x*-axis is the magnetic field zero
if the two currents are in the same direction?

At what point on the *x*-axis is the magnetic field zero
if the two currents are in opposite directions?

Answer #1

if the two currents are in the same direction, magnetic field will be zero somewhere in between the wires

now let it be at x = a cm

then u_{o}5/(2pi x (2+a)) = u_{o}3.5/(2pi x
(2-a))

=> 5(2-a) = 3.5(2+a)

=> 10 - 5a = 7 + 3.5a

=> 3 = 8.5a => a = 3/8.5 = 0.35294 cm

if the two currents are in opposite directions then it will be zero somewhere on x > 2cm, let at x = b cm

then u_{o}5/(2pi x (2+b)) = u_{o}3.5/(2pi x
(b-2))

5(b-2) = 3.5(2+b)

1.5b = 17 => b = 11.3333 cm

Two long, parallel, current-carrying wires lie in an
xy-plane. The first wire lies on the line y =
0.310 m and carries a current of 25.5 A in the +x
direction. The second wire lies along the x-axis. The
wires exert attractive forces on each other, and the force per unit
length on each wire is 300 µN/m. What is the
y-value (in m) of the line in the xy-plane where
the total magnetic field is zero?

total magnetic field is zero.

Two long straight wires carry currents perpendicular to the
xy plane. One carries a current of 45 A and passes through
the point x = 5.5 cm on the x axis. The second
wire has a current of 80 A and passes through the point y
= 4.3 cm on the y axis. What is the magnitude of the
resulting magnetic field at the origin?
