This is MOT converted electromagnet

Your post is such chaotic.. What is question?

Strength of magnetic field depends on flowing current, measured in amperes.

Q=I*t
Q/e is quantity of electrons.
So if you have I=1 A, t=1s,there is 6.24*10^18 electrons flowing per second.

Plug some ampere meter on wire between electromagnet & batteries, to see it's value.
Also plug some variable resistor/potentiometer
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potentiometer
to be able change resistance thus flowing current.
I=U/R

Then compare mass with different setting of potentiometer. Read ampere from ampere meter.

What is an MOT?

I can't see anything here that fits: http://www.acronymfinder.com/MOT.html

Microwave oven transformer.

The question was , simply put , I have a hard time identifying dependent and independent variables , and the control . There is no control group . It was 4 in the morning when I posted my query ! The electromagnet we made from the microwave oven transformer works fine , it is ran on 9v , which are constant until connected to the coil and under load. I was trying to list all my variables about are experiment , luckily it iced last night and my daughters school was cancelled /science fair postponed for a day. The experiment was a success , her title was How much weight can my electromagnet lift , we kept the voltage at 9v to keep the results from varying , and I listed what I thought was all variables and control , to which this post was all about , she is in 4th grade so we used weight and gravity to estimate the force to break the bond , the mathematics , greatly appreciated will do us no good . I know it sounds crazy but I cannot identify these variables when we do are own experiment ! Sorry if I am confusing , lack of sleep , and lots of work have my head spinning

Electromagnet 2.0 , I can build anything ,but when it comes to elementary education im lost ! Internet says I need a placebo , and Newton says it hurts when random apples fall from the sky !
