Induction in a conducting sheet by a small current-carrying loop

  • James R. Wait


The problem of a small current-carrying loop situated over a thin plane sheet of conducting material is solved. The cases are considered where the loop axis is oriented both perpendicular and parallel to the plane of the sheet.
