Unformatted text preview: L9-1Now on to a mathematical description of magnetic fields:- recall 2 ways to calculate electric field- here there are also two ways- dB =I ds- Bdl =.2encEdQdEkrrQ==rintegrating over chargesintegral ruleintegrating over currentsintegral ruleYou cant derive these laws proven by experimentThe Biot-Savart Law:How do you make a magnetic field?Charges in motion create a magnetic field. A steady current Iflows in a circuit. What is the resulting magnetic field?IThe electric field dEproduced by a charge dqisdE= (1/4)(dq/r2)rf8e5The Biot-Savartlaw says:The magnetic field dBproduced by a bit of circuit dscarrying current IisdB= (/4)(I/r2)dsr The permeability constantis= 4 10-7T-m/Aexactly. f8e5General meaningof Biot-Savart formuladB= (/4)(I/r2)dsrr is unit vector from point on wire to point P dspoints along wire indirection of currentdsxrgives a vector = direction of dB at point Pthen integrate along wire Btot= dBField of a Long,Straight WireB= I / 2rUse Biot-Savart to compute:Field of a Long,Straight WireB= I / 2rField at distance rfrom long, straight wire carrying current IUse Biot-Savart to compute:Direction of B- around the wire(the field lines are circles)Use a right-hand rule:Thumb along current, thenfingers show BThe magnetic field at the position P points1.
