+ve Solution: Let = , = I1 30A I2 20A = , = , = a 1 cm b 6 cm L 13 cm The magnetic field due to I1 can be found by drawing a circle at a distance r from the wire and applying Ampere's Law: . = B dl μoI1 = B μoI12πr The field goes into the page inside the rectangular loop. (a) Force on top edge of loop = = F1 μoI1I2L2πa Force on bottom edge of loop =
