Looking for equation/proof of b field in a solenoid

  1. Apr 8, 2013 #1
    Hi guys, I'm looking for an equation and/or proof of the magnetic field produced inside a solenoid with a finite length (hence, it shouldn't just be "muNOT n I." For some reason I can't find a simple proof anywhere. I have no idea where to start. ampere's law obviously doesn't work, and that other law didn't seem of much use...


    Thanks in advanced!

    Do you want it only on the axis (fairly simple) or anywhere inside the solenoid (very messy)?
