How to do Biot-Savart for Loop of Current

A second example of Biot-Savart is with loops of current. We know that any current will produce a magnetic field, but a circular loop of current produces a linear magnetic field along its central axis. This is like the Helmholtz coil we use in the lab. Check out how to set this up and get an expression for that central axis.
