Solenoids A solenoid is a conducting wire wrapped into a cylindrical shape. It acts like a capacitor for magnetic fields. Inside: vector B is constant Outside: vector B is virtually zero Chapter 29: Magnetic Fields due to Currents – p.

Getting vector B of a Solenoid To find vector B , we use Ampere’s Law and treat the solenoid like two lines of current-carrying wires. In the middle, vector B = μ 0 in where i is the current going through the solenoid, and n is the number of turns in the solenoid. Chapter 29: Magnetic Fields due to Currents – p.

Toroids A toroid is a solenoid that has been curved until its ends meet (a current doughnut). vector B is trapped within the toroid. We apply Ampere’s Law again in this case: B · 2 πr = μ 0 iN ( N is the number of turns) B = μ 0 iN 2 πr Chapter 29: Magnetic Fields due to Currents – p.
