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

A long, straight wire carrying a current of 3.00 A is placed along the axis of a cylinder of radius 0.500 m and a length of 5.00 m. Determine the total magnetic flux through the cylinder.

2. Relevant equations

flux=BAcostheta

3. The attempt at a solution

i found the area of the cylinder first and i dont have any idea where to go from there. Im not really finding any helpful equations.....
