How much power is needed to be able to melt aluminum using induction heating?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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.
