# Two parallel currents

**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

Two current carrying wires run parallel. The bottom wire creates a magnetic field at a point on the top wire. What direction is the force on the left wire?

**2. Relevant equations**

I’m assuming there’s no equation, just the right hand rule..?

**3. The attempt at a solution**

I think this problem asks for the right hand rule, but I’m not sure. I don’t have a very good grasp of the right hand rule… I’m assuming it is dependent on the direction of the magnetic field and something else.

Please help!
