What have you read about magnetic pressure, and what seems to be difficult.

It's related to J x B, i.e. it's a manifestation of the Lorentz force.

I suppose ill have to read up on lorentz force. I guess I just dont understand where it is. Is it IN the iron section of the electromagnet? Around it? I dont get it lol.
