The magnitude of magnetic force between parallel current-carrying wires is:

$\overline{){\mathbf{F}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{\mu }}_{\mathbf{0}}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{l}}{\mathbf{2}\mathbf{\pi r}}}$

a.

F1 = F12 - F13

$\begin{array}{rcl}{\mathbf{F}}_{\mathbf{1}}& \mathbf{=}& \frac{{\mathbf{\mu }}_{\mathbf{0}}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{l}}{\mathbf{2}{\mathbf{\pi r}}_{\mathbf{1}}}\mathbf{-}\frac{{\mathbf{\mu }}_{\mathbf{0}}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{3}}\mathbf{l}}{\mathbf{2}{\mathbf{\pi r}}_{\mathbf{2}}}\\ & \mathbf{=}& \frac{\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{4}\mathbf{\pi }\mathbf{×}{\mathbf{10}}^{\mathbf{-}\mathbf{7}}\mathbf{\right)}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{10}\mathbf{\right)}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{10}\mathbf{\right)}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{50}\mathbf{×}{\mathbf{10}}^{\mathbf{-}\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{\right)}}{\mathbf{2}\mathbf{\pi }\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{2}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{0}\mathbf{×}{\mathbf{10}}^{\mathbf{-}\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{\right)}}\mathbf{-}\frac{\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{4}\mathbf{\pi }\mathbf{×}{\mathbf{10}}^{\mathbf{-}\mathbf{7}}\mathbf{\right)}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{10}\mathbf{\right)}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{10}\mathbf{\right)}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{50}\mathbf{×}{\mathbf{10}}^{\mathbf{-}\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{\right)}}{\mathbf{2}\mathbf{\pi }\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{4}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{0}\mathbf{×}{\mathbf{10}}^{\mathbf{-}\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{\right)}}\end{array}$ ###### Problem Details a. What is the magnitude of the net force on the first wire in (Figure 1)?
