Thank you... If anyone knows of a built in calculator or a simple way to calculate this. Pls let me know. B Last edited by Benofer90; Sep 6th 2014 at 11:24 PM.

Gauss and Tesla are units of magnetic flux, not force. Here's a link to a calculator that may be helpful. Note that the size and shape of the magnet are important characteristics, as well as distance to the steel plate: https://www.kjmagnetics.com/calculator.asp

I have tried that calculator but it only provide an answer to either a gap or a steel thickness . I am looking for both gap and steel thickness at the same time . Any idea of a simple way to calculate the magnetic pull force either in newtons or pounds between N35 magnet and a steel plate where the gap between a magnet AND steel plate is X AND the steel plate thickness is Y. .????
