1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://img294.imageshack.us/img294/3157/lines.gif [Broken] Two long parallel wires are separated by 0.2 meters and carry currents of 3 and 5 amps as shown in the figure. What can we say about the force on wire #2? There is no force on wire #2 The force on wire #2 is towards wire #1 The force on wire #2 is away from wire #1 The force on wire #2 is into the page The force on #2 is out of the page There is no force on #2 but there is a torque. 3. The attempt at a solution I believe that wire #2 has a stronger force on it, but I don't quite know what direction it would be in. Trying to use the right hand rule, i believe it is in the -k direction, but am unsure. I just for some reason don't feel entirely confident. Any help is gratefully appreciated!!
