Homework Help: Electricity generated by conductor

  1. Nov 8, 2004 #1
    I got a question:

    when a conductor is charged with current electricity, does it create any kind of magneticism strong enough to affect the present magnetic field, and how do you calculate the amount of magneticism generated?

    thanks a lot

    First of all it's spelt magnetism no c involved

    and secondly magnetic field is only created by the flux in electric field i.e. if the electric field changes in some way then the magnetic field will be created

    Use the Biot Savart law for this purpose
