Problem 23P

Find the magnetic vector potential of a finite segment of straight wire carrying a current I . [Put the wire on the z axis, from z1 to z2, and use Eq. 5.66.] Check that your answer is consistent with Eq. 5.37.

Equation 5.66

Equation 5.37

Step 1 of 4

We are required to calculate magnetic vector potential of the given wire segment and check its consistency.
