This experimental law defines the magnetic flux density vector B.
Lorentz Force Law:
In general, (with both E and B present):
The units of B are Webers/m2 or Tesla [T].
Magnetic Gauss Law: Differential Form
Apply the divergence theorem:
Since this applies for any volume,
B field flux lines either close on themselves or at infinity!
Define:
H is called the “magnetic field”
The units of H are [A/m].
(for single infinite wire)
Ampere’s Law (cont.)
Hence
Ampere’s Law
Iencl
Although this law was “derived” for an infinite wire of current, the assumption is made that it holds for any shape current.
This is an experimental law.
“RightHand Rule”
Amperes’ Law: Differential Form
C
S
(from Stokes’ theorem)
S is a small planar surface
Since the unit normal is arbitrary,
electric Gauss law
magnetic Gauss law
Faraday’s law
Ampere’s law
In contrast to electric fields, the sources for magnetic fields produce a circulation and are vectors! !

The other components are zero, as in the wire example.
This formula holds for any radius, as long as we get Ienclcorrect.

Note: The magnetic field does not depend on y.
