Note
^ denotes power
E-06 means 10^ (-6)

Diameter of the solenoid=d= 1.2 cm= 0.012 m
Length of solenoid=l= 8 cm= 0.08 m
Therefore
Volume of the solenoid=V= pi d^2 l /4= 9.0478E-06 m^3

Solution Summary

The solution calculates enery stored in a magnetic field.

The problem reads as:
"The magneticfield permeating a region of space represents stored energy. This energy is often quantified in terms of its density (magnetic energy per unit volume) given by B^2/(2*u) where u=4*pi X 10^(-7). Suppose an "X2" flare occurs within a volume of 10^12 km3 over a sunspot pair initially permeate

At what distance from a long, straight wire carrying a current of 100.0 A is the magneticfield due to the wire equal to the strength of the Earth's field, approximately 4.0E-5 T (in m)?

The Earth's magneticfield is essentially that of a magnetic dipole. If the field near the North Pole is about 1.0x10^-4 T, what will be its approximate value 18,000km above the surface at the North Pole?

A solenoid that is 75 cm long produces a magneticfield of 2.1 T within its core when it carries a current of 6.8 A. How many turns of wire are contained in this solenoid?

A) What change in magnetizing force is required to decrease the flux density of magnetic material from a saturation in the positive direction to zero.
B) Also same question, however magnetic force is required to reverse the direction of the magneticfield from saturation in the positive direction in the direction to saturatio

A wire 2.80 m in length carries a current of 5.00 A in a region where a uniform magneticfield has a magnitude of 0.390 T. Calculate the magnitude of the magnetic force on the wire assuming the angle between the magneticfield and the current is (a) 60.0, (b) 90.0, (c) 120.

Can you show that the energy of interaction is proportional to the scalar product s∙l.? See attachment for symbols.
The energy of a magnetic moment mu in a magneticfield B is equal to their scalar product (see attachment). If the magneticfield arises from the orbital angular momentum of the electron, it is proportional to
