Forces between current- carrying wires present familiar examples that we can use to determine what a magnetic force field should look like: Here are the easily-observed facts: B.Hemalatha AP-ECE 2Biot-Savart Law Biot-Savart Law • The current flowing in any path, can be considered as many infinitesimal current elements, each of length dl, flowing in a magnetic field dB, at any point P ˆ Idlr 0 dB 2 4r B.Hemalatha AP-ECE 3Idl sin 0 • The magnitude of dB is: dB 2 4r where θ is the angle between dl and r ˆ Idlr 0 BdB • The total magnetic field at point P is: 2  2r • This is equivalent to Coulomb’s Law written in differential form: 1dq dE 2 4r 0 B.Hemalatha AP-ECE 4Magnetic Field due to a Current- Carrying Wire Biot-Savart Law Hans Christian Oersted, 1820 B.Hemalatha AP-ECE 5• Magnetic fields are caused by currents. • Hans Christian Oersted in 1820’s showed that a current carrying wire deflects a compass.
