    S91, your question shows you haven't bothered to look up Maxwell's equations and tried to learn these things for yourself. The magnetic field of a moving charge can be easily calculated, and depends on the path of the charge, so your question should specify which electrons you mean.

    Look up Maxwell's equations on Wiki, or HyperPhysics.

    I am talking about electrons in conductor with current.
