Is the conversion of electricity into a magnetic field 100% efficient?
@brandon nope, resistance of the wire will cause energy loss through heat.
@brandon Don't think so. You'll lose current/energy in the conducting material?
@fatboy Hmm, probably, I imagine it's probably something more along the lines of 99.9%
@brandon There should exist an equation for this.
@fatboy Probably, but my AC circuits notes are buried somewhere :P
