The magnitude of the force on a length L of either wire is 1. Identify that parallel currents attract each other, and antiparallel currents repel each other. MAJOR REASON WHY AM ASKING IF IT IS STATED THAT THEY ATTRACT EACH OTHER February 11th, 2018, 06:24 PM #6 Senior Member   Joined: Jul 2012 From: DFW Area Posts: 642 Thanks: 99 Math Focus: Electrical Engineering Applications I think the answer is 0. Assuming no external fields: Ampere's Law: $\displaystyle \large \oint_l H \cdot dl = \int_S J \cdot ds = I$ For each wire, choose as the surface a circle of radius 0.5m centered on each wire. The line integral is therefore the circumference of the circle. So: $\displaystyle \large H(2 \pi)(0.5)=2$ $\displaystyle \large H \pi = 2$ $\displaystyle \large H=\frac{2}{\pi} \ \left ( \frac{A}{m} \right )$ Imagine the two wires (and currents) coming out of the page with one wire on the right and one on the left. In the middle between the two wires, using the right hand rule, the current of the left wire produces a magnetic field of $\frac{2}{\pi}$ directed upwards while the current of the right wire produces a magnetic field of $\frac{2}{\pi}$ directed downwards. These cancel to give 0 midway between the two wires.
