(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

12.5A, 3.1x10^-5

2. Relevant equations

How far from a long conductor passing a current of 12.5A is the magentic field of strength 3.1x10^-5T?

3. The attempt at a solution

B= uI/2(pi)r

r=uI/2(pi)B

=(4pi)(12.5A)/ 2(pi)(3.1x10^-5T)

= 8.1x10^5m
