Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

as you know according to ampere's law ∫B.dl=μ_{0}I

but why μ_{0}that appears in Maxwell's equations is exactly 4π *10^{-7}?

for example in electric field ε_{0}is 8.85 *10^{-12}

and μ_{0}like ε_{0}is a constant that is related to material properties and why this constant is a special number as π that B is special ?
