## Passage

A telephone cable at a place has four long, straight horizontal wires carrying a current of 1.0 A in the same direction east to west. The earth’s magnetic field at the place is 0.39 Gauss, and the angle of dip is 35°. The magnetic declination is nearly zero, (cos 35° = 0.82, sin 35° = 0.57)
