Magnets produce/generate magnetic fields (Chap. 30) The magnetic field is a vector quantity The letter B is used to denote the magnetic field How to determine the direction of the magnetic field at any point in space? We place a small ( imaginary ) compass at the point of interest. The direction of the magnetic field at that point is the direction in which the N-pole of the compass points. Magnetic fields 5

N S N S N S Magnetic field inside the magnet If we cut the magnet in half we get two magnets . An imaginary compass placed between the two magnets gives the direction of the B-field inside the magnet. S N B One can make the cut anywhere, in each case the B-field points from the north pole towards the south pole. N S N S N S N S 8

Magnetic Force Similar to the treatment or definition for the electric field , where the E-field was given as: We can define the B-field in the same way by replacing the “electric charge”, q , by the “ moving electric charge”, qv . qvB F qv F B or This is the magnetic force applied on the charge q which is moving with velocity v perpendicular to the magnetic field B . q F E el charge Force 11
