Example: Magnetic Field Inside A Long Cylindrical Conductor

A cylindrical conductor with radius R carries a current I. The current is uniformly distributed over the cross-sectional area of the conductor. Find the magnetic field as a function of the distance r from the conductor axis for points both inside (r<R) and outside (r>R) the conductor.

We will take the ampere loop to be a circle. Hence, for points inside the conductor, the ampere loop will be a circle with radius r, where r<R. The current enclosed will be  Applications of Ampere`s Theorem - Magnetism, Electromagnetic Theory, CSIR-NET Physical Sciences Physics Notes | EduRev

For points outside the conductor, the ampere loop will be a circle of radius r, where r>R . The current enclosed will just be I.

Example: Magnetic Field Of A Solenoid

A solenoid consists of a helical winding of wire on a cylinder, usually circular in cross section. If the solenoid is long in comparison with its cross-sectional diameter and the coils are tightly wound, the internal field near the midpoint of the solenoid’s length is very nearly uniform over the cross section and parallel to the axis, and the external field near the midpoint is very small. Use Ampere’s law to find the field at or near the center of such a long solenoid. The solenoid has n turns of wire per unit length and carries a current I.

From Ampere’s Law, we have:

Let’s consider path 1,

No current is enclosed by the path. Hence, the magnetic field along the path is 0.

Let’s consider path 3,

The net current enclosed by the path is 0. Hence, the magnetic field along the path is 0.

Let’s consider path 2,
