A very long straight wire carries current I. In the middle of the wire a right-angle bend is made. The bend forms an arc of a circle of radius r as shown in the figure below.

Lets say the permeability of free space is mu. So I believe the answer is ((mu*I)/(4*pi*r))*(pi/2), which equals to (mu*I)/(8*r).

It says the answer is wrong... Can anyone help?
