you need a slinky spring, hall probe, ammeter, variable power supply and 2x 0.5 m rulers
clamp the two rulers firmly - 20 cm apart
make sure there are 50 slinky turns between them
Work out turns per unit lenght - 50/0.2 = 250 turns per meter.
Record flux density of the solenoid for a current of 8A
Repeat this method using varying turns per unit length.
plot a graph of Flux density (hall probe reading) against number of turns.
you will get a straight line graph through origin, with grad being u0I
PS - number of turns can be kept constant and vary current to see if B is proportional to I
