Force between two superconducting wires

  1. Jul 10, 2015 #1
    Consider two parallel superconducting wires. Both the wires carry the same current and the current is going in the same direction. do they experience a magnetic force attracting them together? Or do their magnetic fields behave differently?

    There is no escaping Newton's third law.

    So does amperes force law apply to superconductors?
