Solution Summary

This solution calculates B and Bsubapp given two circumstances.

Solution Preview

Taking the circulation of the magnetic field along the closed curve made of the axis of the solenoid and a curve outside, at which the magnetic field is negligible, we have

L*H = N*J (1)

where L=0.2 m is the length of the solenoid, N = 400 is the number of turns, J = 4A is the current and H is the H field which is ...
