B and H field for a long rod and a disk

As shown in the figure attached.
If both have the magnetization M, what will the B field and H fied for each object look like? why?
I have no hint how to answear this question, can anyone help?

Usually we speak of magnetization as being inside of some material. That directly relates to the "H field" (or magnetic field inside a medium) by a factor $$\chi$$.

The "B field" then follows directly from that using basic relations; however, can you provide more context? Why do you ask?

It is something related to the concept demagnetization.
For a ellipse, the demagnetizating factor is the same everywhere.

I assume that the picture means that M is constant in the material with the direction shown.
B and H are determined by the boundary conditions at the surfaces and constrained by the relation B-H=4pi M (in gaussian units).
Permeability and susceptibility are meaningless for this case.
For the disk, B=2pi M and H=-2pi M, because the BC at the ends dominates.
For the rod, B=4pi M and H~0 for most of the length, but near the ends the disklike BC dominates.

What dose BC mean?
