Magnetic force on a loop

Hi all

I tried to solve one of the magnetostatic problems and I end up with a trivial solution. The problem as shown in the figure, we have an infinite current carrying line and a circle with a radius "b" and current I2. The problem asks for the force being exerted by the line on the circular loop. My answer as it’s shown doesn't depend on "d" neither "b" which makes no sense.

Can you debug my solution?

This is problem 10 on page 321 of Smythe "Static and Dynamic Electricity" (3rd Edition). Smythe has the answer. Yours is not correct.

Sorry I just read the massage from the forum, I didn't thought that this is considered to be a homework question.

Sorry all....
