Example 15.1 (B field from a thick wire)
A wire with a radius of r=1cm has a
uniform current of 1A flowing
through it.
What is the B field 1 meter from the
center of the wire?
What is the B field 0.5cm from the
center of the wire?

Electricity & Magnetism Lecture 15, Slide 11
Example 15.3 (Pipe of current)
 Conceptual Analysis
Complete cylindrical symmetry (can only
depend on r)
 can use Ampere’s law to calculate B
 Strategic Analysis
Calculate B for the three regions separately:
1) r < a
2) a < r < b
3) r > b

Two thick cables both of
radius R and length L carry
a current, I, side-by-side as
shown to the left. The left
cable has the current into
the screen and the right
cable has the current out of
the screen.
What is the magnetic field at points A, B, C and D?
- A is at the center of the left cable
- B is a distance R/2 from the center of the left cable
- C is at the point where the cables touch.
- D is the bottom of the left cable

 Conceptual Analysis
use Ampere’s law to calculate B from each cable separately
 Strategic Analysis

Note:
•
B250/Btot = 0.024
•
So closest coil contributes over 10 tens more than
average coil. Make sense?
