Abstract : The electric field due to an alternating current carrying solenoid was investigated by the field approach. The solenoid was assumed to be in an infinite, uniform, conducting medium, which may exhibit the Hall effect caused by a constant, axial, external magnetic field. Both the infinite and finite coil problems were studied. Explicit solutions to the infinite coil were found while the finite coil solutions were obtained in integral form. From the latter, the coil impedance and the voltage induced in a particular wire loop were calculated numerically for different scalar and Hall conductivities at different lengthto-diameter ratios. Some experimental evidence for the calculated values of the impedance without the Hall effect also was found. (Author)
