Biot-Savart Law and Magnetic Field around a Current Carrying Wire (9:48)
Explore the fascinating world of magnetism with today's lesson on the Biot-Savart Law! Join us at Flipping Physics as we delve into the equation that defines the infinitesimally small magnetic field (dB) created by current through a wire. Learn the right-hand rule to determine magnetic field direction and get hands-on with examples. Explore how the magnetic field varies above and below the wire and grasp the alternate right-hand rule. While we won't dive into the derivation today, the insights gained will spark your curiosity!
