Layers V.S. Length; Electromagnets ? Answered
Ok, so I am going to be working on a project that involves electromagnets and the on thing I have never gotten straight is this:
To make the most effective magnetic field possible do I make the (hypothetically) 100' of wire a long coil with only a couple of layers or 100' of wire a short coil with many layers?
I have always come across conflicting views on if length improve the fields or weaken them. Any insight would be helpful and if you could also provide a good reference site for these types of questions that would also be appreciated.
