# Flux Density in Mutual Induction Solenoid with Core

For a standard solenoid, I've found that
B=μnI
where
n = number of coils
I = current

Firstly, is the permeability of soft iron 0.08, as I found?

Primarily, however, I'm wanting to know if this still applies for a mutual induction apparatus like in

I think B=μnI/l where l is the length of the solenoid.

Keep in mind that nothing interesting will happen with DC currents. Yes, a magnetic field will be generated but you will not get any mutual induction unless your flux is changing (i.e. varying current through one of the coils.

It's for an alternating current.
Presumably the maximum flux density will occur at the current peak?

Yes, because

and here B is a linear function of the current (I) as I wrote in my first post.

Thanks, that's what I though :)
Is the formula for the flux a solenoid correct though?

You mean this: B=μnI/l ?

It is correct assuming the solenoids length is much longer than the radius. B can be considered almost homogeneous inside the solenoid.
But in any case B is linearly proportional to I.
