Homework Help: Derivation for Magnetic Dipole of Current Loop

  1. May 2, 2005 #1
    Hi All,

    Please show me the derivation of the vector potentiol A for the magnetic dipole.
    from equation 8.21 to 8.21a
    This page is taken from Sadikus book.

    ** i tried all day and couldnt manage to obtain it. i need the derivation step by step **

    It looks like the cosine law in a triangle.You should spot that triangle out from the drawing (check all slides).

    And the magnetic potential is the solution of Poisson equation for magnetostatcs.
