  1. Isn't this Amperes law? Assume all current is at the center, so distance for B is one radius.

    Another approximation is uniform current density, you integrate current density,
    another approximation is that all the current is one the skin, you have to integrate dB. But having done this, I have found the maximum B is the same.
