Two insulated wires in the x-y plane cross at a 30° angle but do not make electrical contact. Each wire carries 3.0 A current (the angle between current directions is 30°). Find magnetic field in two non-equivalent points located 4.0 cm from the intersection, in the x-y plane, at equal distances from both wires.
B = (μ0I)/(2r) For a straight wire
The Attempt at a Solution
I'm not sure I understand the problem, or how to tackle it, could you guys help me out analyzing it? I understand the concept if I had only one wire, it would be simple, I know the value of μ0, of I (3.0 A) and of r (0.04 m)
From what I understood I did this drawing, now my issue is how do angles come into play?
