Question:

Consider a current-carrying wire in the shape of a circle. Note that as the current progresses along the wire, the direction of j changes in an exact manner, while the current I remain unaffected. The agent that is essentially responsible for is

(a) source of emf

(b) electric field produced by charges accumulated on the surface of wire

(c) the charges just behind a given segment of wire which push them just the right way by repulsion

(d) the charges ahead

Solution:

The correct answer is (b) electric field produced by charges accumulated on the surface of wire
