Two parallel wires which carry currents I1 = 69 A and I2. The top wire is held in position, the bottom wire is prevented from moving sideways but can slide up and down without friction. If the wires have a mass of 5.3 g per metre of length calculate current I2 such that the lower wire levitates at a position 4.8 cm below the top wire.
