Two small identical circular loops carrying equal currents are placed with the geometrical axis perpendicular to each other. Find the magnitude and direction at a point O at an equal distance x from their centers.

2. Relevant equations

Magnetic field of a current carrying circular loop at a distance x on it's axis : μIR^{2}/2x^{3}when x>>>R

3. The attempt at a solution

Let μIR^{2}/2x^{3}= B

Then magnitude should be (2^{1/2})B(Fields perpendicular to each other)

Inclined at an angle 45° with the horizontal.

Are my directions right?
