In mathematics, a toroid is a surface of revolution with a hole in the middle, like a doughnut, forming a solid body. The axis of revolution passes through the hole and so does not intersect the surface. For example, when a rectangle is rotated around an axis parallel to one of its edges, then a hollow rectangle-section ring is produced. If the revolved figure is a circle, then the object is called a torus.
The term toroid is also used to describe a toroidal polyhedron. In this context a toroid need not be circular and may have any number of holes. A g-holed toroid can be seen as approximating the surface of a torus having a topological genus, g, of 1 or greater. The Euler characteristic χ of a g holed toroid is 2(1-g).

However, I have a doubt about the linear charge density ##\lambda##.

Hello,
I would like to know what is the magnetic field of a half toroid.
Would we use Ampere's law? So, considering that the integral is equal to BA, we would have BA = μo * i, then B = (μo * i) / r. But, using Biot-Savart's law, by symmetry, it seems that the vector sum of all the...

Hi,

Why is this equation: B(D - d)/mu + Bd = mu0 N I true?

mu0 = 4pi x 10^-7

Finding the magnetic field for a straight wire using the right hand rule shows that the field is around the wire.
Applying this same concept for a toroid, the magnetic field inside is central to the loop of wires so that makes sense.
