(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A current of 4.05 A is located 5.93 cm along the x axis, that is, at the point (5.93,0.00) cm. A current of 4.00 A is located 3.88 cm along the y axis, that is, at the point (0.00,3.88) cm. (These currents flow parallel to the z axis, with a positive current flowing in the + k direction.)

Find the magnetic field at the origin.

Enter the x and y components of the field:

2. Relevant equations

ampere's law

3. The attempt at a solution

i kno i have to use ampere's law, but i'm not sure how to do this with 2 currents

i attempted to find each current's magnetic field and then added the x and y components of each together

i drew a diagram but this RH rule stuff goes completely over my head

not sure if i have to use an angle somewhere or what
