** Please see the attachment for the complete solution response **
Solution: a) Currents in the same direction:
(Please see the attached file)
Magnitude of magnetic field at a point distant r from an infinite straight current carrying conductor is given by: B = μ_0 I/2Пr .........(1)
Direction of the magnetic field can be determined as follows: Imagine ...
