1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two long thin parallel wires 13 cm apart carry 25A currents in the same direction. Determine the magnetic fild at point P 12 cm from one wire and 5 cm from the other. 2. Relevant equations B=mu/2pi * I/r 3. The attempt at a solution I have already solved this problem, and I have the answers. The problem is I wasn't too specific when doing it and now cant figure out for the life of me how I got the angle I used! when I use ratios like (.12/.13) instead of Cos theta it works out opposite, for the other current carrying wire. How do I know what is theta? I remember vaguely doing something like 90-theta then doing cos/sin of that to find the xy components. Helping me with this would mean a LOT to me guys. I checked the book for similar examples, none. Only ones where forces are all x or all y with no components. EDIT: I have the angles now, but I'm still unsure which to use for which current carrying wire. I have 67.4 and 22.6. Do I do 90 - the angle I get fr each current carrying wire since the B field is perpendicular?
