The magnetic field of a cylindrical sheet of current provides a representation of the external field of a cylinder uniformly magnetized along its symmetry axis and and an approximation to a helically wound solenoid and is expressible in terms of elliptical integral functions. This interactive Live Script calculates and displays this magnetic field.
