1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hi all. I I have a wire, and a stationary current I runs through it, then an electric field E1 runs inside the wire in the same direction as the current. If we look at a point P a vertical distance s from the wire, does P get affected by an electric field from the wire? If yes, is this the same field as when the wire just has a uniform charge spread over it?
