Answer #1

A long wire carrying a 4.0 A current perpendicular to the
xy-plane intersects the x-axis at x=−2.2cm. A second, parallel wire
carrying a 2.8 A current intersects the x-axis at x=+2.2cm
A) At what point on the x-axis is the magnetic field
zero if the two currents are in the same direction?
B) At what point on the x-axis is the magnetic field
zero if the two currents are in opposite directions?
