Biot-Savart Law for a Point Charge

Given that the point charge is moving significantly below the speed of light:

 , where:

B = Magnetic B-Field (T)

v = Velocity of Point Charge (m/s)

q = Charge (C)

 = Magnetic Constant (H/m), written as mu nought (u0)

 = Pi

 = Unit Vector in Direction of Current to Point Charge (m)

r = Distance from Current to Point Charge
