Worksheet: Using the Biot–Savart Law to Calculate the Magnetic Field of a Constant Current
In this worksheet, we will practice using the Biot–Savart law to calculate the magnetic field produced by a current-carrying loop of wire.
There is a 10 amp current through a square loop for which each side is 20 cm in length.
At each corner of the loop is a 0.010-cm segment that connects the longer wires as shown.
Calculate the magnitude of the magnetic field at the center of the loop.
