S Sayak

The magnitude of the magnetic field at a distance r from a long straight wire carrying current I is given by,

|B|=\frac{\mu _{0}I}{2\pi r}

In this case

|B|=\frac{4\pi \times 10^{-7}\times 35}{2\pi\times 0.2}=3.5\times 10^{-5}T            (current=35A, distance= 0.2m, permeability of free space = 4\pi \times10-7 TmA-1)
