Forces between long current-carrying wires: experiment • We find the following: – The force is attractive when the currents are in the same direction. – The force is repulsive when the currents are in the opposite direction. – The force is proportional to the product of currents in the wires. – The force weakens as the inverse of the distance between wires. • These observations are explained if the B-field produced by a wire – Has a magnitude proportional to the current in the wire. – Has a magnitude that falls of as 1/distance from the wire. – Has a direction that circulates in the wire in a sense given by right-hand-rule#3: Put the thumb of your right hand along the current. Your fingers circle in the direction of the field.
