    This thread should be in the project forum but im after a calculation. For my project im making a generator and i need to calculate the strength of my magnets in Tesla to calculate the total induced EMF but the strength of each magnet is in kilograms (pull * 18.33kg). how do i convert this into Tesla?

    Hi! I have an approximate formula which might help you:
    Tesla=(0.577xF/A)1/2
    Where: F is the force in pounds and A is the pole area in sq inches.
