In this problem, we are required to identify a law that we can use to determine the magnetic field due to a point charge.
We can work out by elimination if we are not sure which law it is.
The magnetic field of a point charge is given by:
a) Biot-Savart’s law
b) Faraday’s law
c) Gauss's law
d) Ampère’s law
e) Einstein’s law.
