Traditional solenoids of C type

  1. Jan 18, 2005 #1
    i know the traditional solenoids of C type, D type and cylindrical (tubular) framing but what stops you from making a solenoid from a small tube and wrapping the wire over and over itself many times over?? WOuldn't that make a strong magnetic field / area??

    Amperes law tells me that your solenoid will work.

    Inside the solenoid the magnetic field is proportional to only two things: the current and the number of turns per unit length. So go ahead.
