The magnetic field created by a single loop of current resembles that of a bar magnet—strongest inside the loop, and decreasing in strength as you move away from the loop. Neither is it in a uniform direction—the magnetic field lines

Unformatted text preview: loop though the loop! Q30.2 No magnetic field is created by a stationary charge, as the rate of flow is zero. A moving charge creates a magnetic field. Q30.3 The magnetic field created by wire 1 at the position of wire 2 is into the paper. Hence, the magnetic force on wire 2 is in direction down into the paper = to the right, away from wire 1. Now wire 2 creates a magnetic field into the page at the location of wire 1, so wire 1 feels force up into the paper = left, away from wire 2. FIG. Q30.3 185...
