i personally think that this is just a very simple problem since the problem only requires plugging the right values into the formula. i'm just having trouble with one minor detail.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

For the current element Idx(ax+ay) A situated at P(1,-2,2), find the magnetic flux densities at P(2,-1,3).

2. Relevant equations

Biot-Savart

dB = (K)(IdI x r)/rr

3. The attempt at a solution

my only problem in here is that i'm having a hard time figuring out what idx is? do i just substitute it for Idl then just get its cross product with r and so on? also, do i need to actually integrate it to get B?

that is all and thanks.
