# PHYSICS...The two very long parallel wires shown in the figure below carry currents in the same direction...?

Two very long parallel wires carry currents in the same direction of I1=7.90 A and I2=11.85 A. The distance separating the wires is 6.13 cm and point P is midway between the two wires.
1.) What is the magnitude of the net magnetic field at point P due to the currents flowing in the two wires?

Two very long parallel wires carry currents in the same direction of I1=7.90 A and I2=11.85 A. The distance separating the wires is 6.13 cm and point P is midway between the two wires.

1.) What is the magnitude of the net magnetic field at point P due to the currents flowing in the two wires?

2.) The direction of the net magnetic field at point P due to the currents flowing in the two wires is...(pick one)
