Homework Help: Drawing Magnetic Fields around Fixed Magnets

  1. Jun 3, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement

    Is the magnetic field around the following two bar magnets:

    |N S| + |S N|

    the same as the magnetic field around:

    |S N| + |N S|?

    2. The attempt at a solution

    Yes, but the arrows on the lines move in opposite directions?

    I think so.

    Alright, I got the answer. :cool: Thanks.

    Another similar inquiry:

    A N S bar magnet is placed near a S N solenoid. Would the magnetic field be the same as if the solenoid was simply another bar magnet?
