Inphysics, specificallyelectromagnetism, theBiot–Savart lawis an equation describing the magnetic fieldgenerated by anelectric current. It relates the magnetic field to the magnitude, direction, length, and proximity of the electric current. The law is valid in themagnetostatic approximation, and is consistent with bothAmpere’s circuital lawandGauss’s law of magnetism.
