Relation between electricity and magnetism?

  1. Apr 24, 2015 #1
    Why flowing current in wire creat magnetic feild.........if any body say this is because of spin quantum number,....
    So i just want to say spin quantum number is because of wave nature of electron.i just want to know what effect of dual nature of electron on magnetic feild.:rolleyes:

    Its got nothing to do with QM - its a relativistic effect:

    The deep reason for both electricity and magnetism however is quantum:

    This dual nature wave particle stuff is a myth:

    Thanks
