1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

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.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

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.
