This is College Physics Answers with Shaun Dychko. We are going to find the magnetic field strength inside a solenoid that has 10000 turns per meter and a current of 20.0 amps. So the formula for that is permeability of free space multiplied by the turns per meter times the current. So that's 4π times 10 to the minus 7 tesla meters per amp times 10000 turns per meter times 20.0 amps and that is 0.251 tesla.
