The figure shows a circular loop of radius a with two long parallel wires (numbered 1 and 2) all in the plane of the paper. The distance of each wire from the centre of the loop is d. The loop and the wires are carrying the same current I. The current in the loop is in the counterclockwise direction if seen from above.
Q.
When d ≈ a but wires are not touching the loop, it is found that the net magnetic field on the axis of the
loop is zero at a height h above the loop. In that case

the net magnetic field due the both wires should be into the plane. For this current in wire I should be along
PQ and that in wire RS should be along SR.
