Magnetic field of a solenoid. A solenoid is a coil of wire designed to create a strong magnetic field inside the coil. By wrapping the same wire many times around a cylinder, the magnetic field due to the wires can become quite strong.
In the above expression for the magnetic field B, n is the number of turns per unit length, sometimes called the "turns density". The expression is an idealization to an infinite length solenoid, but provides a good approximation to the field of a long solenoid.
We can find the magnetic field due to a solenoid carrying a steady current as follows. First, we work out the field due to a single circular loop of radius as measured at a point on the axis (which we’ll take to be the axis) of the loop.

Magnetic Field of a Solenoid. A solenoid is a tightly wound helical coil of wire whose diameter is small compared to its length. The magnetic field generated in the centre, or core, of a current carrying solenoid is essentially uniform, and is directed along the axis of the solenoid.
In short: the magnetic field inside an infinitely long solenoid is homogeneous and its strength does not depend on the distance from the axis, nor on the solenoid cross-sectional area. This is a derivation of the magnetic flux density around a solenoid that is long enough so that fringe effects can be ignored.
Magnetic Field of a Solenoid. A solenoid is a helical coil wound around a cylinder. When a current runs through the coil, a magnetic field is created. The strength of the magnetic field is proportional to the number of turns.
Solenoid just cancels out componets of the field perpendicular to its axis and parallel to the plain of the windings since windings are very close and, though current in them flows in one direction, say forward, upper wire induces left magnetic field between the wires whereas bottom wire produces the same...
Current in solenoid produces a stronger magnetic field inside the solenoid than outside. The field lines in this region are parallel and closely spaced showing the field is highly uniform in strength and direction. Field lines outside the solenoid are similar to that of a bar magnet...
