# Derivation for Biot Savart Law

how is the Biot Savart law derived?? From where does it come?

## Answers and Replies

Experiment shows that B depends on current,conductor geometry etc and I assume that Biot and Savart started with experimental results from geometries such as straight wires and solenoids and worked backwards to find a general equation that covers all integratable geometries.
