Ampere’s law

Flux=0!

Ampere’s law: Remember Gauss’ law?

Given an arbitrary closed surface, the electric flux through it is

proportional to the charge enclosed by the surface.

Gauss’ law for Magnetism:

No isolated magnetic poles! The magnetic flux through any closed “Gaussian surface” will be ZERO. This is one of the four “Maxwell’s equations”.

ds

Ampere’s law: a Second Gauss’ law.

The circulation of B

(the integral of B scalar

ds) along an imaginary

closed loop is proportional

to the net amount of current

traversing the loop.

Thumb rule for sign; ignore i4

As was the case for Gauss’ law, if you have a lot of symmetry,

knowing the circulation of B allows you to know B.

Sample Problem
• Two square conducting loops carry currents of 5.0 and 3.0 A as shown in Fig. 30-60. What’s the value of ∫B∙dsthrough each of the paths shown?

R

Ampere’s Law: Example 1
• Infinitely long straight wire with current i.
• Symmetry: magnetic field consists of circular loops centered around wire.
• So: choose a circular loop C -- B is tangential to the loop everywhere!
• Angle between B and ds = 0. (Go around loop in same

direction as B field lines!)

R

Ampere’s Law: Example 2
• Infinitely long cylindrical wire of finite radius R carries a total current i with uniform current density
• Compute the magnetic field at a distance rfrom cylinder axisfor:
• r < a (inside the wire)
• r > a (outside the wire)

Current into page, circular field lines

r

Ampere’s Law: Example 2 (cont)

For r>R, ienc=i, so

B=m0i/2pR

For r < R

All loops in the figure have radius r or 2r. Which of these arrangements produce the largest magnetic field at the point indicated?

Magnetic Field of a Magnetic Dipole

A circular loop or a coil currying electrical current is a magnetic dipole, with magnetic dipole moment of magnitude m=NiA.

Since the coil curries a current, it produces a magnetic field, that can be calculated using Biot-Savart’s law:

Sample Problem

Calculate the magnitude and direction of the resultant force acting on the loop.
