Vector potential

  1. Sep 21, 2004 #1
    Hi All,

    I've just looked at an example for calculating the vector potential for a point in the vicinity of a long straight wire.

    I've now got to calculate the vector potential for a point between 2 parallel straight wires carrying currents in opposite directions. How does the vector potential differ in this case.

    By the way....study biot-savart is giving me a headache :)

    I would think you just add them together (with the appropriate sign).
