# Is it a wire? Is it a magnet?

In the early 19$^\text{th}$ century, it was discovered that when current is passed through a loop of wire, it behaves as if it were a magnet.

The direction of north and south of the magnet depends on the direction in which the current flows in the wire, clockwise or anticlockwise.

If we take two loops of wire and pass current in the same direction in both wires, then will they attract or repel?
