    Above fig. shows a straight current carrying conductor. Point P is at a perpendicular distance a from the conductor. Angles θ1 and θ2 are as shown in the fig.. Magnetic flux density B at P due to the current carrying conductor is given by: B = (μ0I/4Пa)[sinθ1 + sinθ2] (both angles to be taken as +ve) ..........(1)

    Direction of vector B for the given direction of current is into the plane (reverse direction of current it will be out of the plane).
