(c) and (d) Fig. 29-45(b) shows that as we get very close to wire 2 (where its field strongly dominates over that of the more distant wire 1) B y points along the – y direction. The right-hand rule leads us to conclude that wire 2’s current is consequently is into the page . We previously observed that the currents were in opposite directions, so wire 1’s current is out of the page . 14. The fact that B y = 0 at x = 10 cm implies the currents are in opposite directions.

This leads to 3 x 2 – 2 Lx L 2 = 0 which factors and becomes (3
