Permanent magnet storage.

Main Question or Discussion Point

I guess I do have to ask some questions on magnet storage. Especially over long periods of time. Basically, I want to know what the effects are if you store (relatively strong) magnets north to south with a slight gap in between (roughly 50mm between).


N===S N===S N===S

That's pretty much the best crude ascii drawing I can do. Anywho, if there is an effect, what would it be relative to time and to distance apart?

That arrangement would tend to preserve the magnetization.
It would be better if they touched. 5 cm seems like too much.
The preserving effect depends on d^2/A(area). If this is not<<1, the effect would tend to fall off as 1/d^2.
The time dependence depends on temperature and the particular characteristics of the magnetic material.
