Consider a co-axial cable which consists of an inner wire of radius \(a\) surrounded by an outer shell of inner and outer radii \(b\) and \(c\) respectively. The inner wire carries a current \(I\) and outer shell carries an equal and opposite current. The magnetic field at a distance \(x\) from the axis where \(b<x<c\) is

\((a)\) \(\frac{\mu_{0} I(c^2 - b^2)}{2 \pi x(c^2 - a^2)}\)

\((b)\) \(\frac{\mu_{0} I(c^2 - x^2)}{2 \pi x(c^2 - a^2)}\)

\((c)\) \(\frac{\mu_{0} I(c^2 - x^2)}{2 \pi x(c^2 - b^2)}\)

\((d)\) \(0\)

magnetic field due to inner wire:

mu I / (2 pi x)current between b and x:

- I (x^2 - b^2) / (c^2 - b^2)magnetic field due to current between b and x:

- [mu I / (2 pi x)] [(x^2 - b^2) / (c^2 - b^2)]magnetic field at x:

[mu I / (2 pi x)] [(c^2 - x^2) / (c^2 - b^2)]which isC– Ramon Vicente Marquez · 3 years, 8 months agoLog in to reply

Ah Ramon, I was waiting for Advitiya to post his attempt. You should not have given the solution. It would be a great experience for Advitiya if he solved this by himself. :)Log in to reply
