Question

The diagram show cross-section of several conductors that carry currents perpendicular to the plane of the diagram. The currents have magnitudes I1=3.5 A,I2=6.5 A, I3=1.5 A and their directions are as shown. Four closed paths labelled a to d are shown. The line integral Bdl for the paths a, b, c and d will be respectively (Each integral going around the path in counterclockwise direction).


A
0, 3.5μo, 3μo, 4.5μo

Solution

The correct option is A 0, 3.5μo, 3μo, 4.5μo
According to Ampere's law,

Bdl=μoI

From the right-hand thumb rule, when going around the path in a counter-clockwise direction, currents out of the page are positive and currents into the page are negative.

For path a, I=0

For path b, I=I1=3.5 A

For path c, I=I1+I2=3 A

For path d, I=I1+I2+I3=4.5 A

aBdl=0

bBdl=3.5μ0

cBdl=3μ0

dBdl=4.5μ0

Hence, the correct answer is option (a).
