Question:

A powerful bolt of lightning can carry a current of 225 kA.

(a) Treating a lightning bolt as a long, thin wire, calculate the magnitude of the magnetic field produced by such a bolt of lightning at a distance of 35 m.

(b) If two such bolts strike simultaneously at a distance of 35 m from each other, what is the magnetic force per meter exerted by one bolt on the other?
