|title: Force between current carrying wires|
12 V marine batteries are shorted through braided cables with one switch. A second switch reverses the current in one wire. The wires hang under their own weight parallel to each other. Oil is placed on the wires for a dramatic smoking effect.
How would you employ the right hand rule for magnetic fields around a wire and the right hand motor rule to determine the direction of the force on the wires?
