Magnetic Field Due to a Finite Length Current-Carrying Wire Using the Concept of Displacement Current
Buschauer, Robert
Physics Teacher, v52 n7 p413-414 Oct 2014
In undergraduate E&M courses the magnetic field due to a finite length, current-carrying wire can be calculated using the Biot-Savart law. However, to the author's knowledge, no textbook presents the calculation of this field using the Ampere-Maxwell law: ?B [multiplied by] dl = µ[subscript 0] (I + e[subscript 0] dF/dt) [multiplied by] 1
