Magnetic Moment Of Steel and Iron Wire

  1. Feb 26, 2014 #1
    Hello all,

    i would like to ask which is the magnetic moment of a steel and a iron wire with a length of 10,20 or 30cm!
    Is there any equation from which the magnetic moment can be derived?


    Thanks in advance :)!!!

    No, since it depends on whether the wire is magnetized or not (and if it is, what the magnetization is).

    Hello!!!

    Thanx for your reply! I have a magnitize/demagnitize device and i want to magnetize a wire!!! How do i find the magnetization?

    Is it the magnetization of the device?

    actually i found out that the magnetic moment of a wire with length L is M , where M = m*L. m is the magnetic pole strength.

    how can i calculate the value m for a iron or steel wire?
