Expert Answer:

For determining the magnetic field due to a finite wire, we use Biot –Savart law. But, Ampere’s circuital law is an alternative way of expressing Biot- Savart law. This is similar to the relation between Gauss’s law and Coulomb’s law. So, Biot- Savart law is also known as Ampere’s theorem.
