Homework Equations


1) B_x = (µ_0 * I) / 2R at x = 0


The Attempt at a Solution


I know that segments BC and DA do not contribute to the magnetic field at O so all I need to know is the contribution for segments AB and CD. Using equation one, I simplified the formula to ((µ_0 * I) / 2) * ((1/0.6) +(1/0.4)).

The relevant equation is for the circular conductor.
Ηere you have to use
B = μ_o/4π*Ι*L/R^2.
Since angle subtended by the segments at the center is π/3, you can find the lengths of the segments by using the formula L = R*θ
