Answer #1

Two parallel long, straight wires are separated by 3.00 cmcm.
One of them carries a current of 2.00 AA. The magnetic field at a
point halfway between the two wires has magnitude
5.00×10−5T5.00×10−5T. What is the current in the second wire if its
direction is the same as in the first wire?
What is the current in the second wire if its direction is
opposite to that in the first wire?
Express your answer with the appropriate units.

Two parallel long, straight wires are separated by 3.50 cm . One
of them carries a current of 2.00 A. The magnetic field at a point
halfway between the two wires has magnitude 6.00×10−5T .
a)What is the current in the second wire if its direction is the
same as in the first wire?
b)What is the current in the second wire if its direction is
opposite to that in the first wire?

Two long, straight, parallel wires carry current. The first wire
carries I1 = 3 A to the right and the second carries I2 = 5 A to
the left. The force per length each wire exerts on the other is of
magnitude 5 × 10−6 N/m.
(a) Sketch the situation. On your sketch indicate the directions
of the magnetic fields produced by each wire and the direction of
the force exerted on each wire. Determine the distance between the
wires....

Two long wires are aligned parallel to each other and separated
by 20.0 cm. One wire carries a current, I1 and
the other carries a current I2 in the opposite
direction, where for the current magnitudes, I2
= 3 I1. The magnitude of the magnetic field at
a point midway between the wires is4.0 μT. Determine
I2.

If the first wire carries a current of 6.5 A towards the page, and
the magnetic field of the two currents at a point P at 1.5 cm is
zero, what current and direction must the second lead wire have for
this to occur. Clarification (apart from the magnitude and the unit
should say the direction of the current)
