## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

One turn will have a length of 2(pi)r. I need to know the thickness of the wire around. Once I have this I can take the length of the solenoid and divide it by this thickness to obtain the number of turns. I'm just not sure how to go about doing this. Help appreciated. Thanks. [/B]
