1. Homework Statement
Problem and solution attached

2. Homework Equations
B = [4uI/(4pi)]sin(theta1-theta2]

3. The Attempt at a Solution
I understand fully how to do it except determining the value of theta1 and theta2. The solution says theta1 is 45(deg) and theta2 is -45(deg). How did they get those values?

What is the geometrical interpretation of the angles θ1 and θ2? You might need to refer back to equation 30.4 in your textbook. There's probably a figure in the text that will be helpful.
