(a) At the magnetic equator (λm = 0), the field is B= 4π × 10−7 T · m/A (8.00 × 1022 A · m2 ) µ0 µ = = 3.10 × 10−5 T , 3 4πr 4π (6.37 × 106 m)3 and φi = tan−1 (2 tan λm ) = tan−1 (0) = 0. (b) At λm = 60◦ , we find B= µ0 µ 4πr3 1 + 3 sin2 λm = (3.10 × 10−5 ) 1 + 3 sin2 60◦ = 5.6 × 10−5 T , and φi = tan−1 (2 tan 60◦ ) = 74◦ . (c) At the north magnetic pole (λm = 90.0◦ ), we obtain B= µ0 µ 4πr3 1 + 3 sin2 λm = (3.1 × 10−5 ) 1 + 3(1.00)2 = 6.20 × 10−5 T , and φi = tan−1 (2 tan 90◦ ) = 90◦ . ...
