Magnetism: Parallel Wires

Q- Two infinite wires run parallel to the z-axis, which points out of the page. One wire carries a current I1= 2 A and intersects the x-axis at x = a = 3 cm. The second wire carries current I2= 5 A and intersects the x-axis at x = -a. Both currents flow in the +z direction. 

(a) Calculate the net …
