Textbook Problem

Suppose you move along a wire at the same speed as the drift speed of the electrons in the wire. Do you now measure a magnetic field of zero?

To determine
Whether the measured magnetic field will be zero when one observer travels along a wire at the same speed as the drift speed of the electrons in the wire.

Explanation

Given Info: An observer is moving along the wire at the same speed as the drift speed of the electrons.

Explanation:

When the observer is moving along the wire at the same speed as the drift speed of the electrons the relative velocity of the electrons with respect to the observer will be zero. Hence, the observer will not experience any magnetic field due to the movement of the electrons.

However, the positive charge now will move with respect to the observer and will create the equal magnitude of current as the electrons...
