You are standing at a spot where the magnetic field of the Earth is horizontal, points due northward, and has magnitude 36.9 μT. Directly above your head, at a height of 12.3 m, a long, horizontal cable carries a steady DC current of 381 A due northward. Calculate the angle θ by which your magnetic compass needle is deflected from true magnetic north by the effect of the cable.
