cture 16- cture 16- 1 Magnetic field of a solenoid A constant magnetic field could be produced by an infinite sheet of current. In practice, however, it is easier and more convenient to use a solenoid . A solenoid is defined by a current I flowing through a wire that is wrapped n turns per unit length on a cylinder of radius R and length L . L R Stretched-out solenoid

cture 16- 4 Ampere’s Law in Magnetostatics The path integral of the dot product of magnetic field and unit vector along a closed loop, Amperian loop , is proportional to the net current encircled by the loop, Choosing a direction of integration. A current is positive if it flows along the RHR normal direction of the Amperian loop, as defined by the direction of integration. Biot-Savart’s Law
