[ Problem View ] Magnetic Field near a Moving Charge Description: Use Biot-Savart law to find the magnetic field at various points due to a charge moving along the z axis. A particle with positive charge is moving with speed along the z axis toward positive . At the time of this problem it is located at the origin, . Your task is to find the magnetic field at various locations in the three-dimensional space around the moving charge. Part A Which of the following expressions gives the magnetic field at the point due to the moving charge? A. B. C. D. ANSWER: A only B only C only D only both A and B both C and D both A and C both B and D The main point here is that the r -dependence is really . The results from using

Description: Magnetic field calculations for z-axis as a function of currents in xy plane. Learning Goal: To apply the Biot-Savart law to find the magnetic field produced on the z axis from current elements in the xy plane. In this problem you are to find the magnetic field component along the z axis that results from various current elements in the xy plane (i.e., at ). The field at a point due to a current-carrying wire is given by the Biot-Savart law, , where and , and the integral is done over the current-carrying wire. Evaluating the vector integral will typically involve the following steps: Choose a convenient coordinate system--typically rectangular, say with coordinate axes , , and .

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
