Lets say you have a block of iron with a mass "m" exposed to an infinitely strong magnetic field "B." If there was a strong wooden interface preventing this iron block from moving towards the magnetic field source, how can you calculate the force the iron block would exert on the wooden board?

The force would be infinite(?)
