How much power is needed to be able to melt aluminum using induction heating? So I have coil of copper wire around an aluminum cylinder. The aluminum is NOT touching the copper wire. the copper wire have a thickness of 0.5 cm. d = 0.5cm the copper wire is looped 20 times around. N = 20 each loop is 10 cm wide d= 10cm Aluminum mass is about 20g m = 20g Aluminum melting point is about 933 K T = 933K Feel free to change anything you like here like the mass and number of loops of the wire .. etc. Is it possible to calculate this? I looking for the formulas and how to use them to solve this, so i can tweak my design and recalculate.
