 P: 1 I have a permanent magnetization $\vec{M}$=(ks)$\hat{z}$, k is just a const, s is the cylindrical coor. Then it turns out that the total bound current not equal to 0. i wonder is it possible? the magnetization is stored inside the shell of a cylinder of inner radius a and outer radius b. thanks in advance!
 P: 971 What do you mean by total current? If the magnetization points in the direction of long axis of the cylinder, there is a surface current circling around the cylinder.
