Question

# Two long parallel wires situated at a distance 2a are carrying equal current ‘i’ in opposite direction as shown in figure. The value of magnetic field at a point P situated at equal distance (r) from both the wires is  μ0iaπrμ0ia2πr2μ0iaπr2μ0ia2πr

Solution

## The correct option is C μ0iaπr2 Magnetic field due to infinite long wire is B=μ0i2πr From the rightangled triangle shown, sinθ=ar Bnet=2Bsinθ=2μ0ia2πr.r=μ0iaπr2
