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.

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.
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...
In a solenoid, a large field is produced parallel to the axis of the solenoid (in the z-direction in figure 2). Components of the magnetic field in other directions are cancelled by opposing fields from neighbouring coils.
Magnetic Field of a Solenoid Introduction A solenoid is a long wire wound in the form of a helix.
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.
