Concept

Problem: An electric current is flowing through a long cylindrical conductor with radius a = 0.15 m. The current density J= 5.5 A/m2 uniform in the cylinder. In this problem, we consider an imaginary cylinder with radius r around the axis AB (a) When r is greater than a, express the current inside the imaginary cylinder in terms of r, a, and J.(b) Express the magnitude of the magnetic field B at r > a in terms i and r.
