Homework Equations




The Attempt at a Solution


I think I got the idea to solve the B1 (the circular segment) and the ones that I wrote "zero", but I'm a bit confused on the straight ones (B2 and B3)....
I'm using the Biot-Savart law, but have no idea what goes inside the integral of (dl x r hat)/r2

Thanks for the help!

Therefore, is it correct if the total magnitude of B is B1+B2+B3 (where B2 and B3 are equal and in same direction), and all of them have a direction pointing into the page?

Sounds right.
