Magnitude of the magnetic field

  1. Apr 28, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The two insulated wires in the figure (Intro 1 figure) cross at a 30^\circ angle but do not make electrical contact. Each wire carries a 5.0 {\rm A} current. Points 1 and 2 are each 3.5 cm from the intersection and equally distant from both wires.
    a) What is the magnitude of the magnetic field at point 1?
    b) What is the magnitude of the magnetic field at point 2?

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
