Homework Help: Calculate Magnetic Field through Angular Velocity

  1. Apr 5, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A thin plastic rod of length L with total charge +q uniformly distributed along only the outer half-length is shown in Fig. 1. The rod is rotated at a constant angular speed w rad/sec about, and perpendicular to, the z-axis. Find the magnetic field B at the pivot, perpendicular to the plane of rotation in terms of L, q and w. (Hint: View the situation as a series of concentric current loops, each with thickness dl.)


    2. Relevant equations
    No clue which equations will help with angular velocity.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't know how to go about this problem

    Thanks for any help.

    Do you know a formula that uses velocity?
