- Homework Statement
- Two wires, 1 and 2, are carrying currents I1 and I2. They are perpendicular to each other and separated by distance d.

What is the force exerted on a segment of wire 2 of length L from the point where they would have intersected if they were on the same plane.

What is the magnetic field at a point P, located a distance R from the wire?

Using Biot-Savart law, equation 12.8 gives the magnetic field.

Using Equation 11.12 to calculate the force.

There are a couple of problems with the same setup. On plugging in the values and solving for the integral, I am not getting the expected values of the force. Is there something wrong in the solution attached?
