# Magnetic flux through a solenoid problem

1. Homework Statement

In one of the problems dealing with solenoid, they gave the value of flux through the cross-section of the solenoid(say 1.6x10^(-3)Weber). Do they mean that this is the flux through a single turn of the solenoid? I get the answer if i take it this way.

Sure.

Flux is the product of the magnetic field and the area it passes through (the perpendicular area). Assume this is constant throughout the solenoid.

Thanks Doc Al.
