Answer:

0.09N, attractive

Explanation:

It can be deducted from the question that the currents are arranged in parallel settings, then it is obvious that the force on each of the wire will be attractive toward the other wire.

the magnitude of force can be determined by using below formula;

F2 = (μ₀/2π)(I₁I₂/d)I₂

μ₀ = constant = 4π × 10^-7 H/m,

I₁, I₂ = currents= 30A

L = the length o the wire=30m

d = distance between these two wires= 0.06m

Since the current are arranged in the same direction, they exhibit attractive force on each other.

Then plugging the values Into the formula above we have

F₂ = (4π × 10^-7 T.m/A)/2π) × ((30A)²/ 0.06m)× 30 m

= 0.09 N, attractive

Therefore, the magnitude and direction of the force is 0.09 N, attractive
