[link] shows a long straight wire just touching a loop carrying a current I 1 size 12{I rSub { size 8{1} } } {} . Both lie in the same plane. (a) What direction must the current I 2 size 12{I rSub { size 8{2} } } {} in the straight wire have to create a field at the center of the loop in the direction opposite to that created by the loop? (b) What is the ratio of I 1 / I 2 size 12{I rSub { size 8{1} } /I rSub { size 8{2} } } {} that gives zero field strength at the center of the loop?
