I Tangential force on a linear solenoid plunger

  1. May 27, 2017 #1

    I know how a plunger in a pull solenoid is pulled to the center of the solenoid. What I am wondering is the following. Does the plunger experience a centering force towards the center of the coil? If the plunger is moved slightly off-axis from the center of a circular coil, will the magnetic component pull it further out of the center or push it back in?

    Thank you very much,
