Magnetic Field due to a Current Carrying Wire with Jumper Cables
Jumper cables used to start a stalled vehicle often carry a 15 A current. How strong is the magnetic field 16 cm away?
What percentage of the Earth's magnetic field (5.00 E-5 T) is this?
Magnetic field is calculated and compared with earth's magnetic field.
