[Question] Solenoid Magnetic Force Calculation, for practical issues.

  1. Jan 14, 2010 #1
    Hi there, before all excuse me for my poor language, i'm not native English speaker, so sometimes it's difficult to express my self.

    The thing is i'm building a homemade weight measure machine (i don't know the exact word for it... :grumpy:) the idea is that it can hold a 5kg mass over it. like this:

    So my main problem is how to calculate the Solenoid (calc its number of loops, height, its amps, ect) so it can hold a 50 Newton force.

    Do you get my point?

    All help is welcome.
