Homework Help: Magnetic Fields strength

  1. Jul 2, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Just wondering if I were to plot the magnetic field strength as a function of time of an RC circuit if they would be related through the time constant in the current (I = Ioe^-t/RC)?

    In general, the magnetic field is proportional to the current that generates it. That's the Biot-Savart Law or one of Maxwell's equations. So yes.
