Answer to Question #17424 in Electric Circuits for Prince Ram
Two parallel current carrying conductor exert some force on each other.If the current in both the conductors is doubled,the force becomes k times.find the value of k
According to the Ampere's force law the force of interaction between two parallel current carrying conductors is
F1 = 2μI²/(4πr)
before doubling and
F2 = 2μ(2I)²/(4πr)
after doubling. Therefore, the coefficient k is
k = F2/F1 = 2μ(2I)²/(4πr) / (2μI²/(4πr)) = (2I)²/(I²) = 4.
