Magnetic field

Expert Answer:

Hi dear,

A non conducting disc means that the disc is not an electro magnet.

A charged disc rotating at constnt angular velocity is equivalent to a steady current in circular wire. We need to calculate this current to find the magnetic field. Let us consider any one cross-section of the wire and all charges must pass through this crosssection in one time period of revolution.

Hence current is:

I = q/T = q (ω / 2π)

Magnetic field due to steady current in a circular wire is:

B = µoI / 2R

Substituting for current , we have,

B = µoqω / 4πR

Hope this helped.
