The torque that is generated inside a magnetic motor is caused from the magnetic forces that is this formula:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F = ILB

F: Magnetic force(Not sure what the unit would be...)

I: Current(A)

L: Torque(N.m)

B: Magnetic field.( Gauss or Tesla?)

I just need some help in calculating the total magnetic force I know the current & the magnetic field(measured in Tesla or Gauss in this cause?). However, the Torque is confusing for me to calculate... I've looked around and read theses slide countlessly but I really don't know how? I end up scratching my head all night wondering how to calculate the torque!

Thanks in advance!
