Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My Question:

A 50.0-cm long solenoid 1.25cm in diameter is to produce a field of 0.385 T at its center. How much current should the solenoid carry if it has 975 turns of the wire?

I know that I have to use this equation:

B = \mu _0 nI

where i'm stuck at is with the length do I used the how long it is with the diameter or do i just ignore the diameter

please help

Thank You
