I assumed it was

**B = μ**

_{0}ηI/r^{3}where

**μ**is the magnetic constant(4π * 10

_{0}^{-7}),

**η**is number of turns of the solenoids/ the length of the solenoids wire (570 turns/216 meters),

**I**is 5 amp current, and

**r**is the distance between the point where i measured using the magnetic field sensor and the center of the solenoid accounting for the z displacement of the plane from the center.

But I guess I was way off. I have no idea what equation I'm supposed to be using is.

It seemed correct from what little I guess I know about magnetic fields, but the results I get from the equation are obviously wrong. I made sure to move away other magnets that may interfere with the experiment and calibrated the sensor. So, there shouldn't be too much wrong with the results from the experiment and it behaved the way you'd expect a magnetic field to behave. There probably still is a margin of error in the measurements, but the equation is what's obviously wrong one.

the purpose of the experiment was to compare results with theory. I can't really do that without proper theory. Anyone know the proper equation to compare the results to use for this? I'm at a complete lost.
