I seem to be confused as i'm designing an experiment involving; aiming to
achieve the magnetic flux density by varying the distance of 2 soleniods B=kd.
In order for this simple experiment i need to use a hall probe and research gave
me:the uses of search coils, i'm now confused between logging in results as why
the use of a hall probe is need as main research gave me the hall effect
principle's and confused me between the functions of a hall probe and that of a
search coil? why the hall probe is needed for the specific experiment? and the
relevance of the hall effect principle to measuring the magnetic flux density?
