PHY2049: Chapter 29 1 Biot-Savart Law Î Deduced from many experiments on B field produced by currents, including B field around a very long wire ± Magnitude ± Direction: RHR #2 ± Vector notation ± Applications ² Reproduces formula for B around long, current-carrying wire ² B by current loop (on axis) ² In more complicated cases, numerically integrate to find B 2 0 sin 4 r θ ds i π μ dB = 3 0 4 r r s d i π μ B d r r r × = 1/r 2 depedence Like Coulomb’s law dB=0 ahead of ds and behind it. Maximum on plane perp. to ds.
