Take a look at Chapter 21, Problem 59 in your Cutnell & Johnson text.Two circular coils are concentric and lie in the same plane. The inner coil contains 120 turns of wire, has a radius of 0.012 m, and carries a current of 6.0 A. The outer coil contains 150 turns and has a radius of 0.017 m. What must be the magnitude and direction (relative to the current in the inner coil) of the current in the outer coil, such that the net magnetic field at the common center of the two coils is zero?
Let's take a closer look.
