Radially oriented magnet

  1. May 13, 2008 #1
    Can we build it without any inequality and without any jagged ?
    i want all flux work as well as picture
    can we build this radially oriented magnet?

    No, there is no such thing as a magnetic monopole.

    i know that there is no such thing as a magnetic monopole
    But maybe we can build it in a labratoar with high tech !?!

    You could make a "monopole" disk, but not a sphere. The spherical monopole is precluded for quite fundamental reasons.

    But one could super glue the north poles of magnets together so that their south poles stick out like the spikes of a porcupine.

    we can build it as disk?

    You can purchase pie shaped magnets where the pointy ends are truncated. They are used to make DC motors. You buy one kind so that all the similar poles faces outward, rather than alternating as in a motor. You'll end up with a thick ring with a fairly large hole in the middle. Google "motor magnets". I suggest you only buy them online if the supllier clearly states the orientation of the poles.

    You can get arc shaped magnets with the magnetic orientation you're looking for at rare-earth-magnets.com. I hope it's what you need. :) I would have posted a direct link, but I don't have 15 posts yet.
