…that if the number of coils is doubled, then the mass of the panel pins lifted, will also double, i.e. 5 coils will enable a lift of X grams of panel pins; 10 coils will enable a lift of 2X grams of panel pins; and 15 coils will enable a lift of 3X grams of panel pins. Hence, an iron bar with a solenoid of N coils will lift a mass of NX grams of panel pins.
