1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://www.cramster.com/Answer-Board/Image/20073231626286331026398833900007956.jpg This is not problem. I just having trouble understanding the basics. Please just tell me right away, don't 'assist!' I trying to understand the right hand rule. Here are to images I found to illustrate my problem. Apparently, right hand rule 2 tells you to grip a long wire, and to find the magnetic field from that. Okay so if I grip a wire with current going upwards, the magnetic field is into the page, and if the current is going downwards, then magnetic field is out of the page. But you do you explain these two picture? In the first picture, the magnetic field is on the 5A wire is apparently ...downwards? How? And the magnetic field on the 3A wire is downward? How is that work? First they dont tell you which way the current is going, up or down. Secondly, the answer is not 'into the page' or 'out of the 'page.' It is 'upwards' or 'downwards,' how come? The second image is mind baffling. What is going on? How can two wires coming out the page have different magnetic fields?
