so trying to understand the derivation of magentic field due to a long straight conductor:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

so biot-savat says in this case:

B= u0I/4pi * integrate over L and -L for: xdy/(x^2+y^2)^(3/2)

and i should turn up with the answear:

B= (u0I/4pi)*(2L/xsqrt(x^2+y^2))

but can't do the integration.. so well i understand biot-savat but yeah can't do the integration, would anybody maybe show me how to do this?

thanks!
