You want to get an idea of the magnitude of magnetic fields produced by overhead power lines. You estimate that a transmission wire is about 11 above the ground. The local power company tells you that the line operates at 16 and provide a maximum of 83 to the local area.

Estimate the maximum magnetic field you might experience walking under such a power line, and compare to the Earth's field. [For an ac current, values are rms, and the magnetic field will be changing.]
Express your answer using two significant figures.

Compare to the Earth's field of .
