1 July 2010 1 - Chapter 29 – Magnetic Fields Due to Currents 29-1 What is Physics? A moving charged particle (i.e., a current) produces a magnetic field. In this chapter we determine the magnetic field due to current in a very small section of current-carrying wire. We then extend the method to calculate the magnetic fields due to different wire configurations
