The Magnetic Field of an Electric Current and Its Action on the Current

Authors: Yannan Yang

By analyzing the magnetic field of a direct electric current within conductors and its action on the charge carrier in the current, a new effect is proposed for a conduct when current flowing through. Similar to the Hall Effect, this effect make the directionally moving charge carrier in the current deflected towards to the center of the current. If the charge carriers of the conductor with only one type charge (positive or negative), a radical electric field will form in the current cross section and a voltage will be produced between the center and the edge of the current. This effect also predicts that for a steady DC current the current density is not evenly distributed in the cross section of the current. The current density in the center area is larger than that in the edge area. It is not like what we always thought that the current density is evenly distributed in the current cross section.
