Let's assume that there is an electromagnet with B=1T , what is the magnitude of the force it could generate on other dipoles equal to it's surface area? Can the magnitude of force (in newtons) be determined from B?

The shape of the field is important for attracting force. Dipole field force varies as the inverse cube of the distance. Beyond that, a sharp edge or a point will have huge field divergence. Magnetically permeable bodies will be sucked in, riding the divergence. Note the pole pattern in refrigerator magnets and channel magnets. For a given total field, one can be clever with addition and subtraction re Halbach arrays.

"The only power consumed in a DC electromagnet is due to the resistance of the windings, and is dissipated as heat."
Is this true? So powerful magnets like junkyard magnets don't consume electricity apart from resistance?
How much does electricity does a junkyard or any other powerful super magnet consume?

(a) A car generator turns at 400 rpm when the engine is idling. Its 300-turn, 5.00 by 8.00 cm rectangular coil rotates in an adjustable magnetic field so that it can produce sufficient voltage even at low rpms. What is the field strength needed to produce a 24.0 V peak emf? (b) Discuss how this required field strength compares to those available in permanent and electromagnets.

The diffuser in a jet engine is designed to decrease the kinetic energy of the air entering the engine compressor without any work or heat interactions. Calculate the velocity at the exit of a diffuser when air at 100 kPa and 30{ C enters it with a velocity of 350 m/s and the exit state is 200 kPa and 90{C.
