Unformatted text preview: 1. (a) Since the field lines of a bar magnet point towards its South pole, then the B arrows in one’s sketch should point generally towards the left and also towards the central axis. (b) The sign of B · dA for every dA on the side of the paper cylinder is negative. (c) No, because Gauss’ law for magnetism applies to an enclosed surface only. In fact, if we include the top and bottom of the cylinder to form an enclosed surface S then s B · dA = 0 will be valid, as the flux through the open end of the cylinder near the magnet is positive. ...
