(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The coils in a set of Helmholtz coils have 186 turns and a radius of 15.9 cm. The current is set at 2.2 A. Express your answers in units of "T" for Tesla.

a) Calculate the magnetic field along the axis at the center of the two coils (x = 0).

b) What is the magnetic field at the center if the currents in the two coils are going in opposite directions?

2. Relevant equations

B= (KN/R) *I <-----used for part A

3. The attempt at a solution

I obtained the correct answer of .0023 Tesla for part a); however, I am unsure how to do part b) ...any help?
