Attraction of the cylindrical magnets
Two coaxial cylindrical permanent magnets are pulled to each other.
Axisymmetric problem of magnetostatics
D = 2" (50.8 mm) - magnet diameter;
l = 0.65" (16.51 mm) - magnet thickness;
δ=0.5" (12.7 mm) - gap between the magnets.
magnet grade N35, Hc = 954930 A/m, Br = 1.26 T;
Calculate the pulling force between two coaxial cylindrical magnets.
To calculate the correct result an integration contour is drawn in the air around one of the magnets.
