MAGNETIC AND MECHANICAL EFFECTS OF ELECTRIC CURRENT
Maxwell’s right hand clasp Rule
If we imagine a current carrying conductor to be clasped with right hand such that the thumb indicates
the direction of electric current, then the direction in which th
e fingers encircle the conductor gives the
direction of the magnetic field lines.
Biot

Savart’s Law or laplace’s Rule
According to Biot

Savart’s law the magnetic field (dB) at a point P at a distance r from a conductor of
length dL carrying a current I is
given by
is proportional it constant. Hence
H m

1
is the
permeability of free space.
Magnetic Field at the Centre of a Circular Coil
If the current through the coil of n turn of ra
dius r is I then, the field at the centre of the coil is
The direction of B is perpendicular to the plane of the coil and its direction follows from right hand
clasp rule.

Case (1): let P be a point at the centre of infinitely long solenoid. Then
