Unformatted text preview: 65. The electric ﬁeld points towards lower values of potential (see Eq. 2540) so E is directed towards point
B (which we take to be the ˆ direction in our calculation). Since the ﬁeld is considered to be uniform
ı
inside the wire, then its magnitude is, by Eq. 2542,
E  = ∆V

200 Using Eq. 2711, with ρ = 1.7 × 10−8 Ω·m, we obtain
E = ρJ
in SI units (A/m2 ). =⇒ J = 1.5 × 107 ˆ
