# Problem P. 4550. (May 2013)

P. 4550. Two alike long, straight wires of diameter d, are at a distance of ; their resistance is negligible and (L D). One ends of the wires are connected through a battery of voltage U, and the other ends of the wires are connected through a resistor of resistance R. What is the value of R if the electric and magnetic forces exerted between the wires are equal? (6 pont)

Megoldásvázlat.

$\displaystyle R=\frac{1}{\pi} \sqrt{\frac{\mu_0}{\varepsilon_0}}\ln\frac{2D}{d}\approx 553\,\Omega.$
