Current Sheet

Part A = See the screenshot

Solutions Below:

Consider an infinite sheet of parallel wires. The sheet lies in the xy plane. A current l runs in the -y direction through each wire. There are N/a wires per unit length in the x direction.

Part A

Write an expression for B(d),the magnetic field a distance d above the xy plane of the sheet.

Use μ

Use μ

_{0}for the permeability of free space.Express the magnetic field as a vector in terms of any or all of the following: d, I, N, a, μ_{0}, and the unit vectors x, y, and/or z.

Use the formula in the screenshot below:

Whoever is the owner of this website, you are amazingggg!! I don’t know if it’s a team or just one person, but you guys should really have an “about me” page! All your hard work putting up these solutions have been highly appreciated, and I really want to know who to thank!! I especially like how you guys have a little explanation beside each step you do, it makes Mastering Physics much easier to understand. Thanks again!

Thank you very much for your kind comment! We’re former physics students that got the idea of putting this site together because of how confusing MasteringPhysics is! It was a lot of work in the beginning, but now we just try to add a couple of new problems a month. As long as people are finding this site helpful, we are happy to do it!
