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
