Typical Problems- Application of Biot-Savart’s Law

Biot-Savart’s Law quantifies magnetic field outside a wire current flowing through an infinitesimal length of the wire. It is differential form of the equation. But, for all practical purposes we have a definite geometry of wire and it is required to determine magnetic field at any point.

Here, some typical problems involving symmetry, asymmetry and combining both symmetry and asymmetry in the geometry of given system have taken up for illustration.
