If two identical wires carrying a certain current in the same direction are placed parallel to each other, they will experience a force of repulsion.
a) true
b) false


  1. Answer:

    The answer is

    B.  false


    Current in the same direction

     When current flow through to parallel conductors of a given length, when the current flows in the same direction

    1. A force of attraction between the wires occurs and this tends to draw the wires inward

    2. A magnetic field in the same direction is produced.

    Current in opposite direction

    when the current is in opposite direction

    1. Force of repulsion between the two wires occurs, draws the wire outward

    2. A magnetic field in opposite direction occurs
