Solenoid Current Formula
The following formula is used to calculate the Solenoid Current.
Is = (B/u)*L/N
- Where Is is the Solenoid Current (amps)
- B is the magnetic flux density (Tesla)
- L is the length of solenoid (m)
- magnetic constant
- N is the number of turns
How to Calculate Solenoid Current?
The following example problems outline how to calculate Solenoid Current.
Example Problem #1
- First, determine the magnetic flux density (Tesla). In this example, the magnetic flux density (Tesla) is determined to be 140 .
- Next, determine the length of solenoid (m). For this problem, the length of solenoid (m) is measured to be 50 .
- Next, determine the number of turns. In this case, the number of turns is found to be 7.
- Next, determine the magnetic constant. This is 10 for this problem.
- Finally, calculate the Solenoid Current using the formula above:
Is = (B/u)*L/N
Inserting the values from above and solving yields:
Is = (140/10)*50/7 = 100 (amps)
Example Problem #2
Using the same method as above, determine the variables required by the formula. For this example problem, these are:
magnetic flux density (Tesla) = 75
length of solenoid (m) = 17
number of turns = 5
magnetic constant = 2.25
Enter these given values into the calculator or above yields:
Is = (75/2.25)*5/17 = 9.803 (amps)
