Typically when explaining why parallel conducting wires attract, it is said that their magnetic fields cancel out (in the case of same direction current) and hence produces an attraction force due to the lack of magnetic field there:
The induced eddy current produces an outward magnetic field. This would 'cancel' out with the external magnetic field and hence attract. But that can't be right! We know that the coil gets slowed not accelerated upon entry!
So my question is, why is the magnetic field not cancelling out and attracting here?
