Suppose you install a compass on the center of the dashboard of a car. Compute an order-of-magnitude estimate for the magnetic field at this location produced by the current when you switch on the headlights. How does it compare with the Earth’s magnetic field? You may suppose the dashboard is made mostly of plastic.
