(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What is the force magnitude on the first, second, and third wires in the figure?

2. Relevant equations

(μ_{0}L I_{1}I_{2})/(2πd)

μ_{0}= 1.2566*10^{-6}

3. The attempt at a solution

Substituting 0.5 as L, 0.02 as d and 10 as I_{1}and I_{2}I get 5*10^{-4},

which comes up as incorrect...what am I doing wrong?

thanks!
