Greetings, I am working as a TA and I encountered a particular question which asks the student to use the Ampere's Law in order to get the magnetic field created by a semi-infinite wire. I know that there will be charge accumulation a time-dependent electric-field, hence a displacement current but could not formulate the problem. The semi-infinite wire which extends to infinity only in one direction. There are no other circuit elements at the other end(finite end) of the wire and the current does not loop. The magnetic field obviously has cylindrical symmetry when the Amperian contour is taken as a circle with its center on the wire. However, due to charge accumulation there is a time-dependent electric field; hence a displacement current as mentioned before. How can I formulate the Ampere's law and show that the magnetic field is the half of that the infinite wire at the finite end of the wire? Do you think treating charge accumulation as a point charge with changing amount of charge right at the finite end of the wire will suffice? What should be the geometry and size of the charge accumulation, should a capacitor be used instead to represent it for example?
