Homework Help: Circuit diagram symbol for an electromagnet

  1. Jun 18, 2006 #1
    Is there a circuit diagram symbol for an electromagnet? Am I correct in thinking that it is a line with a coil going round it? I have looked all over the web, and cannot find confirmation of this.

    You will find a list of symbols, including one for an electromagnet (solenoid symbol) http://www.kpsec.freeuk.com/symbol.htm" [Broken].
