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

A cylinder of radius a has a hole drilled through it of radius b, the hole is parallel to the axis of the cylinder but is displaced from it

by a distance d in the x-direction where d < a - b. The asymmetric hollow cylinder has a uniform current densityJ= J_{z}e_{z}

Show that the magnetic field inside the hole is uniform and show that

B= (μ_{0}/2)J_{z}de_{y}

2. Relevant equations

Amperes law?

3. The attempt at a solution

I am at a complete loss, I dont know how to use ampere's law for something that is asymmetrical. Any ideas on how I should approach it?
