A long wire with a solid metal core is surrounded by a layer of insulator. A cross section view of the wire is shown in the accompanying figure: The center of the wire is located at the origin. The solid portion of the wire, labeled region 1, has $r < r_a$, and the insulator portion of the wire, labeled region 2, has $r_1 < r < r_2$. The core carries a current which is uniformly distributed over the cross-section of the core according to $i(r)=i_o \,\ A/m^2$. The current is in the direction of a vector out of the plane of the drawing.
What is the magnetic field, magnitude and direction, in the region $r_1 < r < r_2$?
