    How would I be able to make a 10000 Gauss electromagnet with Copper wiring and transformer grade steel?

    I would appreciate your help!

    In my own opinion there is no greater mathematical Principle than that which is x - x = 0. This shows that matter can be created from nothing as long as the total product of the matter's mass & energy equal exactly zero.
    The only question is, "Where did all that antimatter go?"

    You might be interested in the method they use, they seem to stack plates with the copper already inside of them or something, I would think that all these thin plates would make a super dense spiral of copper or something. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGytW_C6hR8's

    It just looks like that's what they are doing.


    With bravery and recognition that we are harbingers of our destiny and with a paragon of virtue.

    You'll need to provide a bit more information: Over how large a volume do you need to sustain a 1T flux density? And over what period of time? Microseconds? Indefinitely long? What temperature range? Etc.

    It's relatively easy (well, maybe not easy) to produce 1T over microscopic regions for microseconds. It's much harder to do so over macroscopic volumes at "DC".

    Well, I was thinking of a magnet similar to the one the famous theoretical physicist, Michio Kaku, when he was 16 made in his garage. It seems like an interesting project, but it generated twice what I am planning, and consumed 8 kilowatts of energy. I dont think this would be wise, as his one blew out all the fuses in his house and plunged it into darkness.

    But mabye this is a bit too extreme. I have limited resources and this is just a project (not school)...

    PS: Thank you for the video Japith, it was very interesting.
