## Homework Statement

Each of two long straight parallel wires separated by a distance of 24.0 cm carries a current of 5.00 A

in the same direction. What is the magnitude of the resulting magnetic field at a point that is 14.0 cm

from each wire?

## Homework Equations

U0I/2pir

U0I/4pia(cos(theta) -cos(theta2))

B1 + B2 =B

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have tried (U0I/2pir)2 as well as U0I/4pia(cos(theta) -cos(theta2)) Where theta 1 is approx 30 and theta 2 is approx 150. r in both equations have been .14. I have also tried U0I/2pi(.14) + U0I/2pi(.24-.14). And a series of other variations which never yield close to the given potential answers. Been working on this for 5 days now.
