Magnet with single pole creation

  • #1
Hi,

I am proposing a simple way to create a magnet with single pole. Not being a physics/science graduate, this came out of interest of thinking only.

Lets consider a sphere, which is hollow inside and has a thickness to it at the surface only. If i cut a certain segment and make it out of magnet, such that the surface outside is North pole and inside is South pole. Similarly rearrange the whole sphere to made of magnets pieces attached together, with all the outside surface as North pole and inside surface as South pole then do I get a Magnetic monopole?

As the outside surface in the three dimension is a North pole. Is this feasible?

Advance thanks for your replies and comments.

Draw the field lines for each piece, and you'll quickly see the problem.
