# Force on a current-carrying wire

**Electricity and Magnetism**Level 2

There are two parallel current-carrying wires, and the directions of the two currents are opposite to each other. The current intensity flowing in each of these two conducting wires is \(1\text{ A}.\) The lengths of the two wires are the same, which is \(10\text{ m},\) and the distance between the two wires is \(0.1\text{ m}.\) What are the direction and magnitude of the force acting on these two wires?
