Calculating B from Ampere’s Law For a few simple shapes, we can calculate the field B easily from Ampere’s Law. The steps: i) use symmetry to deduce the general behaviour ii) pick a closed curve on which to apply Ampere’s Law, taking advantage of the symmetry iii) Calculate (in terms of | B |) iv) Calculate I encircled v) Apply Ampere’s Law to get B ds B Thin Sheet of Current Thin Sheet of Current (e.g. in a strip of foil) field lines w w L b a d c
