I got this formula for the magnetic field of a square-shaped coil: B = m0*2*sqrt(2)*I*N/(a*pi), where m0 is the permeability, and a is the side of the square... I can't really get why it is so, and my best tries resulted in approximation of the 'diameter' of the coil, for example by taking the diagonal of the square... thanks in advance!!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
