Class 10 Physics Magnetic Effects of Electric Current Magnetic Field in a Circular Carrying conductor

Magnetic Field in a Circular Carrying conductor

  • At every point of current-carrying circular conductor, the magnetic field is in the form of concentric circles as represented above.
  • The circles are concentric in nature with increasing diameters as the move farther from the current carrying wire.
  • At the centre of the circular loop, the circles appear like straight lines.
  • The magnetic field produced by a current-carrying straight wire depends inversely on the distance from it and directly on the current passing through it.

The Right Hand Thumb Rule is applicable here at every point of the current carrying conductor
