Activity to show that the magnetic field is produced along the straight current carrying conductor -
- Take a thick straight conductor XY and pass it through the centre of a thick cardboard.
- Pass current through the conductor such that it flows from X to Y.
- Sprinkle some iron filings on the cardboard and gently tap. You will see that the iron filings arrange themselves in concentric circles around the wire.
- These concentric circles represent the magnetic field lines.
- To know the direction of the magnetic field, we plot the field lines with the help of a compass needle. The North pole of the compass points in the direction of the field at any point. The direction of these field lines is clockwise.
- If the direction of current is reversed, these field lines are anticlockwise
