192 Sources of the Magnetic Field *P30.13 (a) We use equation 30.4. For the distance a from the wire to the field point we have tan30 2 °= a L , aL = 02887 . .

Now one-half of one nearby side of the triangle will be half as far away from point P b and have a geometrically similar situation. Then it creates at P b field 42 21 7 3 2 4 I a I a = .
