I'm working on a homemade electromagnet, to use on my racecar(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I want to calculate the number of turns of an electromagnet and the thickness of the wire.

But i have tried to search arround in books, and can't really find any thing.

I know my wire is 0,114mm and dimensions for electromagnet is

Hight: 7mm

width: 12mm

lenght: 57mm

The form is like a horseshoe, but with 90* edge. Picture is linked:

My material of the core is steel (ignore the fact about type of steel)

I have 0,7 ampere for use.
