The magnetic field at r > a:
B = μ0(πa2J)/(2πr) = μ0a2J/2r
Th magnetic field is μ0a2J/2r
An electric current is flowing through a long cylindrical conductor with radius a = 0.15 m. The current density J= 5.5 A/m2 is uniform in the cylinder. In this problem we consider an imaginary cylinder with radius r around the axis AB
(a) Express B in terms of J, a, and r.
(b) For r = 2a, calculate the numerical value of B in Tesla
