Statement of a problem № 10652


Two parallel rods are each 0.50 m in length. They are attached at their centers to either end of a spring (spring constant = 150 N/m) that is initially neither stretched nor compressed. When 950 A of current is in each rod in the same direction, the spring is observed to be compressed by 2.0 cm. Treat the rods as long, straight wires and find the separation between them when the current is present.
