Oersted ] stimulated a proliferation of experimental research and fresh discoveries throughout Europe. Given the complexity of the new phenomena, most physicists and chemists made a greater number of purely qualitative observations. From the outset, only Ampere and Biot - in competition with each other - attached great importance to the quest for a mathematical law that would express the magnetic action of a current and that would be capable of predicting new experimental results. Rejecting the wealth of experimental qualitative results, Biot sought to find a single law that would express the amount of magnetic force exerted by an infinitely long wire on a magnetic pole as a function of its distance to the wire.
