Wire in an external magnetic field#

A long, straight, horizontal wire carries a left-to-right current of 24.5\(\rm\ A\).The wire is placed in a uniform magnetic field of magnitude 29.0\(~\mu\mathrm{T}\) that is directed vertically downward.

Question Text#

What is the magnitude of the net magnetic field 16.5\(\rm\ cm\) above the wire?

Answer Section#



\(B=\) \(\rm\ \mu T\)
