Magnetic Field of Coil
The magnetic field produced by an electric current in a coil of wire can be visualized as the superposition of the magnetic fields of the current loops which make it up. The fields of the individual current loops add inside the coil to produce a strong and fairly uniform magnetic field. A tightly wound coil is called a solenoid.
