A solenoid is a coil of metal wire that is used to create an electric current. When the coil is wound and the current is turned on, the coil's electrons flow freely and the coil becomes an electromagnet. This causes a force to be created that can be used to move something.

A solenoid is an electrical device composed of two electrical conductors wound into a tightly packed helical shape. When a current is applied to the two conductors, a magnetic field is created. This magnetic field creates a force between the two conductors that causes them to move relative to each other, generating a linear motion. This motion can be used to create mechanical energy, such as in an actuator. Solenoids are often used to convert electrical energy into linear motion (actuators) or linear motion into electrical energy (sensors).
