36. Using Eq. 2913, the force on, say, wire 1 (the wire at the upper left of the figure) is
along the diagonal (pointing towards wire 3 which is at the lower right). Only the forces
(or their components) along the diagonal direction contribute. With
θ
= 45°, we find the
force per unit meter on wire 1 to be
