T.O. 33B-1-13-38Where:I = Current through coil (amperes)K = 45,000 (a constant, ampere-turns)L = Length of the part (inches)D = Diameter of the part (inches)N = Number of turns in coilExample:Determine the current required to longitudinally magnetize a steel part 10 inches long with adiameter of 2 inches using a 12 inch diameter coil having 5 turns. (See paragraph 3.3.12.6.2 todetermine cross-sectional area ratio between part and coil.)Substituting the known values and doing the calculations gives:I=450002510I = 1800 amperesTable 3-2 gives typical currents for a five turn coil with the parts lying in the bottom of the coil or held next to the coilwall.Table 3-2.
