Finding Velocity from Force, Comsol Multiphysics (transient)

  1. Jun 24, 2009 #1
    I am using Comsol Multiphysics to model a magnetic plug surounded by water in a tube.

    The plug interacts with a magnet and a force is induced.

    Since I am using the ALE moving mesh option, i have defined the boundaries of the geometry to move with the velocity of the plug.

    This velocity was found by using the momentum equation ( force = dp/dt where p = mv )

    m = mass; v = velocity. I separated and integrated, to find xvel = F*t/mass + c where C can be neglected.

    Is there any other way to determine the velocity of the plug based off of the force produced by the magnet that DOES NOT include time (t)?
