The electromagnetic field of a solenoid
Abstract
Taking BiotSavart's law as a starting point, expressions for the components of the electromagnetic force in any point of the field of a finite circular solenoid are given by means of elliptic integrals. We do not deduce the force arising from a plane closed circuit, but integrate first along a generating line, thus determining the force arising from an elementary strip of infinitesimal width. The discontinuity of the force on the surface of the solenoid is discussed.
