Two wires a and b carrying equal currbts of 10 ampere are placed parallel to each other with a separation of 4 cm between them as shown in fig. Find the magnetic field at P ,Q .

Ampere's law is used to get magnetic field at a given point which is at a distance r from a current carrying conductor
B = μo I / (2π r)
It is assumed current directions in the two wire are same.
Hence at P, magnetic field = μo I / (2π) [ 1/(2×10-2) + 1/(6×10-2) ] = (2×10-7×10)×100×[ (1/2) + (1/6) ] ≈ 1.33×10-4 T
at Q, magnetic field is zero because field due to both wires wll be getting cancelled
