Try this …

Create a contour for integration (a circle seems to make sense here!)

Alan Murray – University of Edinburgh

Take a closed contour

These currents are “enclosed”

And these currents are not!

òH.dl = Current Ienclosed
• This is, as it turns out, Ampere’s Law and is the magnetic-field equivalent of Gauss’s law
• If we define H=B÷μ, B=μH, thenòH.dl = Current “enclosed” = òòòJ.ds

Ampere’s Law – Worked Example
• Calculate the magnetic field H both

Outside (r>R)

and

Inside (r<R)

A wire with uniformly-distributed current I,current density

Ampere – Worked example

i.e. what is the magnetic fieldabove and close to a metal “track”on a printed circuit board or chip?

òH.dl = Ienclosed?

Alan Murray – University of Edinburgh

òH.dl = aH(H, dl parallel)

òH.dl = 0(H, dl perpendicular)

òH.dl = 0(H, dl perpendicular)

H

òH.dl = aH(H, dl parallel)

òH.dl = Ienclosed?

Current enclosed = a´I/L

òH.dl = aH + aH = 2aH

òH.dl = Ienclosed® 2aH = aI/L

|H| = _I_ 2L

Alan Murray – University of Edinburgh

òH.dl = Ienclosed?

|H| = -I_ 2L

|H| = +I_ 2L
