How does the section of iron coil influence the magnetic field?

Do you maybe mean an 'iron core?' If so, an iron core

strenghthens the magnetic field significantly. *If the coils are

wound closer together the fluxlines are more dense and increase the

strength of the field slightly (an iron core strengthens the field

by allowing the magnetic field to propagate inside it better than

air).
