Rotating a Bar Magnet

  1. Jan 16, 2007 #1
    Ive always wondered what happens to the magnetic field of a bar magnet if it is spun at a high velocity around an axis between the poles. Can someone explain.:smile:

    The rotating B field will lead to an E field. At high enough spin rate, this will produce magnetic dipole radiation.
