Yes Can a scalar magnetic potential be defined? “Sometimes” ( 29 Assume a scalar magnetic potential exists This definition must not conflict with our previous results Curl of the gradient of a scalar is identically equal to zero. Therefor if is to m m V V = -∇ ∇× = = ∇× -∇ H H J H ( 29 be defined as the gradient of a scalar magnetic potential, the current density must be zero throughout the region in which the scalar magnetic potential is to be defined. 0 m V = -∇ = H J

It is also applicable to permanent magnets ( 29 ( 29 0 0 2 The scalar magnetic potential satisfies Laplace's equation.

If we let be zero at 0 and proceed counterclockwise around the circle, the magnetic potential goes negative linearly.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
