Consider an aluminum wire with 1 mm diameter below its critical temperature of 1.2 Kelvin. It's critical magnetic field is 0.01 Tesla. What is the maximum current in Amps that you can send down this wire for it to remain superconducting?

A 570-turn solenoid is 19cm long. The current in it is 32A . A 2.0cm -long straight wire cuts through the center of the solenoid, along a diameter. This wire carries a 27A current downward (and is connected by other wires that don't concern us). What is the force on this wire ...

Suppose a straight 1.25 mm diameter copper wire could just "float" horizontally in air because of the force of the Earth's magnetic field B, which is horizontal, perpendicular to the wire, and of magnitude 5.00 multiplied by 10-5 T. What current would the wire carry? I want to...
