By Ampere's law,the line integeral of magnetic induction B along a 
closed loop around a current carrying conductor is directly 
propotional to the current carried by the conductor.Does this imply 
that the work done by the magnetic field H (which is directly 
propotional to B ) along a closed loop is not zero? ie) It is
