the situation is as shown on the right.
The components of F4 are given by
F4 x = − F43 − F42 cos θ = − μ 0i 2
2pa − μ 0i 2 cos 45° − μ 0i 2 sin 45° μ 0i 2 2 2 pa =− 3μ 0 i 2
4 pa and
F4 y = F41 − F42 sin θ = μ 0i 2
2pa 2 2 pa = 4 pa . Thus,
⎡ ⎛ 3μ i 2 ⎞ 2 ⎛ μ i 2 ⎞ 2 ⎤
F4 = ( F + F ) = ⎢⎜ − 0 ⎟ + ⎜ 0 ⎟ ⎥
⎢⎝ 4πa ⎠ ⎝ 4πa ⎠ ⎥

j] 38. (a) The fact that the curve in Fig. 2964(b) passes through zero implies that the
currents in wires 1 and 3 exert forces in opposite directions on wire 2. Thus, current i1
points out of the page. When wire 3 is a great distance from wire 2, the only field that
affects wire 2 is that caused by the current in wire 1; in this case the force is negative
according to Fig. 2964(b). This means wire 2 is attracted to wire 1, which implies (by
the discussion in Section 292) that wire 2’s current is in the same direction as wire 1’s 1141
current: out of the page. With wire 3 infinitely far away, the force per unit length is given
(in magnitude) as 6.27 × 10−7 N/m. We set this equal to F12 = μ0i1i2 / 2π d . When wire 3
is at x = 0.04 m the curve passes through the zero point previously mentioned, so the
force between 2 and 3 must equal F12 there. This allows us to solve for the distance
between wire 1 and wire 2:
d = (0.04 m)(0.750 A)/(0.250 A) = 0.12 m.
Then we solve 6.27 × 10−7 N/m= μo i1 i2 /2πd and obtain i2 = 0.50 A.
(b) The direction of i2 is out of the page.
