Solution

## The correct option is B √3 μ0I2RWe know that when current flows through the ring, it generates magnetic field at the center of ring and its direction is normal to the plane of ring depending upon the direction of current flow in the ring.Hence,The magnetic field due to ring in y-z plane is→B=μ0I2R(±^i)The magnetic field due to ring in x–z plane is→B=μ0I2R(±^j)The magnetic field due to ring in x–y plane is→B=μ0I2R(±^k)Adding all the three equations, we get→B=μ0I2R(±^i)+μ0I2R(±^j)+μ0I2R(±^k)|→B|=μ0I2R√3
