Two parallel wires carry 1-A currents in unknown directions. The distance between the wires is 10-cm. What is the magnitude of the magnetic field B in Teslas at a point P located 6-cm away from the axis of one of the wires and 8-cm away from the axis of the other wire? Details...

Thank you for the answer.

Airplanes are noisy things. For example, if you stand really close to a runway, a military jet can produce a sound intensity of about 100 W/m^2 at a distance of 30 m from the plane (this is beyond painful noise). You live near a military airport and want to work on physics ...
