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?

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?
