Magnetic Field Calculation

  1. Oct 27, 2004 #1
    I have two parallel plate electrodes in which flows a determined current J. I found that the magnetic field between the two electrodes is:

    [tex]B_z (y,z)=\frac{\mu J}{2\pi d}(\vartheta_1+\vartheta_2}[/tex]

    (see attached figure)

    This comes form the field generated by a plate that is:

    [tex]B_z (y,z)=\frac{\mu J}{2\pi d}\vartheta[/tex]

    Does anybody knows from where come this formula and how to demonstrate it??

    I´m just fighting against Maxwell´s equations, but they are winning... :yuck:

    Can you explain [tex]\vartheta[\tex] means?

    it is a TeX command to write theta in that way.

    \theta [tex]\Rightarrow\,\,\theta[/tex]
    \vartheta [tex]\Rightarrow\,\,\vartheta[/tex]
