1. Using a high density magnetic field. Energy [math]\displaystyle{ E }[/math] in terms of magnetic field strength [math]\displaystyle{ B }[/math] is

[math]\displaystyle{ E = \frac{1}{2}B^2 = \frac{1}{2}Li^2 }[/math]

where [math]\displaystyle{ L }[/math] is the inductance of the electromagnet and [math]\displaystyle{ i }[/math] is the current.
