Enter the circulating current and the total area into the calculator to determine the magnetic momentum.

Magnetic Moment Formula

The following equation can be used to calculator a magnetic moment.

m = I * A

  • Where m is the magnetic moment (amps*m^2)
  • I is the current (amps)
  • A is the area (m^2)

Magnetic Moment Definition

A magnetic moment is defined as the product of the current and area of a magnetic field.

Magnetic Moment Example

How to calculate magnetic moment?

  2. Next, determine the area.

    Calculate the total area.

  3. Finally, calculate the magnetic moment.

    Calculate the magnetic moment using the formula above.


What is a magnetic moment?

A magnetic moment is the strength and orientation of a magnetic that when under a current produces a magnetic field.

What is a magnetic field?

A magnetic field is a force or influence that acted on electric charges and currents due to magnetized material.
