Why will a solenoid with a stuck plunger draw excessive
amps? I am familiar with resistance and inductive reactance.

Obviously, there must be less inductive reactance, but why?

How does the location of a solenoid plunger effect its
current draw or the amount of inductive reactance present?

Dear cobaltfjord:

Where is the majority of the "soft iron mass" located, when the
solenoid is extended? Where it is close to every turn of wire,
or only close to a few? Think about what it means to have
reduced iron mass exposed to the same flux.
