1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider 2 parallel wires with currents running down them in the same direction. The first is fixed in place unable to move. The second is allowed to move. They exert an attractive magnetic force on one another, and the second wire moves towards the first. The second moves and speeds up; work is done. Magnetic fields do no work on moving charged particles. Is this statement violated in this situation? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Not really sure. It seems like the magnetic force would be enough to allow the 2nd wire to move, although the field itself does no work, the magnetic force can?
