Hello everyone, I have a few projects in mind that call for various sized solenoids. I have been experimenting with various gauges of magnet wire, however, every time the battery is connected, it gets too hot to hold. with that being said, is there a way to calculate how many volts and amps a given gauge of wire can handle? I don't know if there are any other variables to consider, but any info will be much appreciated. P.S I am not sure if something like this has been posted already or not. I searched for solenoids, but came up with nothing.
