    magnetic field and force of current carrying wires

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Two straight, parallel wires are carrying current, I1 in wire 1 and I2 in wire 2. The wires are separated by a distance R, and are each of length L.

    1) What is the magnetic field B at wire 2 due to the current in wire 1?

    2) What is the force on wire 2 due to 1? (assume that I1 and I2 are in opposite directions)
    Also, what is the direction of this force?

    ** answers should be given as algebraic expressions **

    Please post in word or pdf format. Problem is attached.
