    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    two parallel wires 20 cm apart carry currents of 16 A in the same direction.what is the magnetic field halfway between them? why is this so?


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    Draw out the fields in a simple diagram and you will see you can take advantage of some symmetries.
