I have read a number of journal article that state that magnetic field strength diminishes inversely proportional to the square of the distance. BUT more than one has stated that the field strength is inversely proportional to the cube of the distance from the surface of the magnet.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Which one is correct?
