## Main Question or Discussion Point

Guys,

I don't quite understand the concept of magnetic dipole moment as a vector.

Suppose we have a magnet (like a rod) in 3 dimensional space. North pole at (0, 0, 0) and South pole at (0, 1, 0).

How would the magnetic dipole vector [tex]\vec{m}[/tex] be oriented?

Thanks.
