Answer #1

According to the given problem,

Each wire creates a field that is clockwise about the direction of the current flowing in it. This means that between the wires both fields are in the opposite direction so they substract.

B = o *i /2πr

B1 =  o *i1 /2πr

B2 = o *i2 /2πr

Bnet = B2 - B1 = o * (i2 - i1) /2πr

Bnet = 4π*10-7 *(23-13) / 2π(0.456/2)

Bnet = 8.772*10-6 T.

I hope you understood the problem, If yes rate me!! or else comment for a better solution.
