Given info: The current through the wire of (1) is 2.00 A. Length of the cylinder () is 3.00m. Radius of the cylinder (r) is 0.500 m. Using the right hand thumb rule, the direction of magnetic field is concentric to the cylinder (parallel to the surface of the cylinder). No field lines enter or leave the cylinder. Therefore, the magnetic flux is zero.
