In electromagnetic field theory, we talk about "magnetizing force". Units of magnetizing force is A/m (Amperes per meter). It's obvious that units of force is Newton. So, is amperes per meter equal to Newton?


Amps per metre is Magnetic field or Magnetic field strength. Amps are actually the current flow x number of turns resulting in the more preferable: -

H = (ampere turns) per metre

Sometimes H is described as magnetizing force.

See this table linked in the deleted answer that I sneakily copied: -

Magneto motive force is ampere turns and neither have the units of newton.
