Biot-Savart Law

Study the magnetic field along the axis of a current carrying circular loop according to Biot-Savart law

Predict the strength of the magnetic field at the centre of the current carrying circular loops

Compare the measured value of the magnetic field at the centre of the circular conducting loops with the predicted (calculated) value

Investigate how the magnetic field at points along the axis of a solenoid varies with respect to the current flowing through the solenoid

Determine how the magnetic field at the centre of a solenoid varies with respect to the current through the solenoid

Find the value for the permeability of free space (magnetic field constant, μ0) experimentally and compare it with the accepted value

Description

The Biot-Savart Law relates magnetic fields to the currents which are their sources. Finding the magnetic field, resulting from a current distribution involves the vector product, and is inherently a calculus problem when the distance from the current to the field point is continuously changing. You will be studying Biot-Savart law and calculations about magnetic fields. You may collect your data and then check or share them.
