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

Prove that the number of turns per length on a solenoid is equal to 1/(diameter).

2. Relevant equations

A= 2(pi)(R)

3. The attempt at a solution

number of turns= length/(2pi*radius)

number of coils per length=(length/(2pi*radius))/length

number of coils per length=1/(2pi*radius)

I'm not sure why I have an extra pi. Did I do something wrong?

Thanks for any help.
