detailed solution

Correct option is D

In three dimensional space, the point lies perpendicular to the plane containing wires. Let θ be the half-angle made by position vector of particle with vertical. Thensinθ=12⇒θ=45° If field due to each wire is BBnet =2Bcosθ Bnet =2μ0i2π212=μ0i2π

Two circular coils X and Y, having equal number of turns and carrying currents in the same sense, subtend same solid angle at point O. If the smaller coil X is midway between O and Y and if we represent the magnetic induction due to bigger coil Y at O as By and that due to smaller coil Y at O as Bx, then find the ratio Bx/By.
