Enter the magnetic field strength (teslas) and the total area (m^2) into the Magnetic Levitation Force Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Magnetic Levitation Force. 

Magnetic Levitation Force Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Magnetic Levitation Force.

MAGLEV = B^2 / (2*4pi*10^-7) * A


  • MAGLEV is the Magnetic Levitation Force (N)
  • B is the magnetic field strength (teslas) 
  • A is the total area (m^2) 

How to Calculate Magnetic Levitation Force?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Magnetic Levitation Force.

  1. First, determine the magnetic field strength (teslas). 
  2. Next, determine the total area (m^2). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = MAGLEV = B^2 / (2*4pi*10^-7) * A.
  4. Finally, calculate the Magnetic Levitation Force.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

magnetic field strength (teslas) = 4.5

total area (m^2) = 2.5

MAGLEV = B^2 / (2*4pi*10^-7) * A = ?
