Hello Student,
Please find the answer to your question
. (i) The magnetic field at P due to current in wire A.
BA = μ0 / 4π 2IA / rAP = μ0 / 4π x 2 x 9.6 / (2 + 10 / 11) (Direction P to M ) … (i)
NOTE : The current in wire B should be in upward direction so as to cancel the magnetic field due to A at P. (By right hand Thumb rule)
The magnetic field at P. due to current in wire B
BB = μ0 / 4π x 2IB / (10 / 11) …(ii)
From (i) and (ii)
μ­0 / 4π x 2 x 9.6 / (2 + 10 / 11) = μ­0 / 4 π x 2IB / (10 / 11)
⇒ 9.6 x 11 / 32 = IB x 11 / 10 ⇒ IB = 96 / 32 = 3A
(ii) The dimensions given shows that
SA2 + SB2 = AB2 ⇒ ∠ASB = 90°
Magnetic field due to A at S
BSA = μ0 / 4π 2IA / rSA = μ0 / 4π x 2 x 9 .6 / 1.6 (Directed S to B)
Magnetic field due to B at S
BSB = μ0 / 4π 2IB / rSB = μ0 / 4π 2 x 3 / 1.2 (Directed S to A)
The resultant magnetic field
B = √B2SA + B2SB = μ0 / 4π √(9.6 / 0.8)2 + (3 / 06 )2
= 10-7 x 13 = 1.3 x 10-6 T
= μ0 / 4π 2IAIB / rAB
= 10-7 x 2 x 9.6 x 3 / 2 = 28.8 x 10-7 N/m
This force will be repulsive in nature.
