Designing an electromagnet

  1. Oct 7, 2012 #1
    Hey guys, is it possible to design a Bitter eletromagnet that produces 25T and is approximately 500 cm3 in size? If so, how much current would it require? Thanks in advance for your responses guys..

    Size doesn't determine the magnet's feasibility - "only" its cost...

    You can increase or reduce all dimensions, including the experiment volume and the coil volume, and get the same induction from the same electric power.

    Well, yes, a big magnet is easier to cool than a small one.
