(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An electromagnet is able to exert a force of 1.5x10^2 N when lifting an object. The electromagnet has 1000 turns, a current of 1.5A, and a material in the core with a relative magnetic permeability of 2.0 x 10^3. What force will the electromagnet exert if the following changes are made, each considered separately?

a) The current is increase to 6.0 A.

b) The number of turns in the coil is increased to 1400 without increasing the length of the coil

c) All of the above changes are considered simultaneously.

2. Relevant equations

My textbook shows absolutely NO equations relating to permeability. Thus, I literally have no idea what to do :S
