2 Identical wires A and B have the same length L and carry the same current I.Wire A is bent to form a square of side a.B1 and B2 are the values of magnetic induction at the center of the circle and center of the square respectively.Find B1/B2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, okay, I got wire A 'square' and wire B 'circle' right?dw:1342104894718:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, for wire A, magnetic field at 'O' will be the combined effect due to the four current carrying sides of the square loop.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, radius 'r' for loop 'B' = L/2pi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, magnetic field for A at O = 4 x \(\mu_oI/(L/8) \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's the square loop, (according to the formula > B = \(\mu_oI/2\pi l\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh yes I missed the '2pi', am sorry please account for that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now for the circular loop, \[B= \mu_oI/2r\ = \mu_oI/2(L/2\pi) = \pi\mu_oI/L\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And for the square loop, we found it out to be > 4 x \(\mu_oI/2\pi(L/8)\) = 16\(\mu_oI/\pi L\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we get pi^2/16 but answer is pi ^2 /8sqrt2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now you can find out the ratio! \[\frac{B_A}{B_B} =\frac{16 μ_oI/πL}{πμ_oI/L} = \pi^2/16\] Now where are we going wrong hmmm?...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@experimentX I seem to get (pi^2)/16, but his book says (pi^2)/(8sqrt2).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2magnetic field due to circular loop is \[ \vec B_1 = {\mu_0I \pi \over L}\] Magnetic field due to square loop is \[ \vec B_2 = {8\sqrt 2\mu_0 I \over L \pi}\] \[ B_1/B_2 = \pi^2/8 \sqrt 2\] http://www.scribd.com/doc/56083415/3/Example91MagneticFieldduetoaFiniteStraightWire
