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 **
