B ⋅ ds around any closed path equals µ 0 I , where I is the total steady current passing through any surface bounded by the closed path r •When the magnitude of the force per unit length between two long parallel wires that carry r ∫ B ⋅ ds = µ I identical currents and separated by 1 m is 2×10-7 N/m, the current in each wire is 1 A 0 •When a conductor carries a steady current of 1 A, the quantity of charge that flows thr...
